This one is definatly...
Ptycta polluta.

Moved tentatively

I had seen that before, but thought this looked slightly
different. Not enough different I guess. I hope the second one tonight is not the same thing. Both are presently captive.

'captive' --awesome!
would you consider sending the voucher specimens to Diane Young?

I have all 3 collected tonight. I do not save them! I will
contact her and see if she is interested in them. I am not sure how best to preserve these tiny ones.
