2365 - Plutella vanella
First live photo that I am aware of. Illustrated on Plate 11.13 in the new Moths of Western North America.

 
John Davis, second specimen
I have pictures of a second specimen that came to our light setups. I *think* I told John he had to take some pictures of that one as well. :)
So, there should be some nicer shots showing up soon. There was a *little* variation in their tail ends, both in a large dark patch in the center, and the little dots & waves at the end of the wings.

 
ID
Thanks, I looked everywhere to find this moth - except the new moth book. Should have looked there first. I'll post a photo later.
