Acrolophus sp.

Moved to Acrolophus walsinghami
Moved from Tubeworm Moths.

This does appear to be Acrolophus walsinghami but without dissection, identification is tentative.

I found yet another example on the Florida Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services website:

0386.1 - Acrolophus walsinghami?
I think this may be Acrolophus walsinghami. There were at least a couple of these Acrolophus moths and although they were different in shade and amount of red, they had a similar pattern.

Moved from Moths.

Clemens ?
See what you think of Clemen's Grass Tubeworm Moth?

Not Sure
Thanks, but BOLD shows a lot of other species that are similar.
