i had 3 of these in a couple days then no more. i look at them every day and i am pretty sure they are Anathix but i am needing a confirmation..they are really neat looking. they closely resemble anathix the wings sorta curve in and the markings are like the one we have in the guide except that the top spot is so light as to be nonexistant..when i look at MPG it seems like it could be aggressa, too..

Moved from Owlet Moths.

Looks Like 9962 - Anathix puta
In examples at MPG and in MWNA, A. aggressa is a paler species. (no rsvp, thanks)

thanks bob
should i then assume the other 2 i have which are much paler are agressa? and ????? and forgive me the the lighter one has light tan on the underwings

I Think it is Paler Due to Lighting (washed out a bit)?
The condition of ventral surface of wings (if you mean underside surface as opposed to hindwings) means little to me. I have no collection to go peek in.

The October date may be getting late for A. puta according to MWNA.
