Moved from Frass.

Yes, Here it is
Check out the link on the following thumbnail. It has both 7347 and 7363. We're thinking it is one of those, but can't seem to get a moth person to commit. Would love to see someone take a stand on these lovelies.

7363W - Marmopteryx marmorata
That does look like a really good match. Do you want me to make a page, and move both images there?

It looks right to us, but we are far from moth experts
We say yes, make the page and save the images. They can always be moved later if we're all wrong. We wouldn't worry too much about frassing old moth images, unless the pictures are not in focus or the moth is pretty worn. It just seems to take forever for the moth experts to get around to them. That's just the way it is and we all just have to be patient.

Did you get a new image or just get tired of waiting?
We don't think we have many of these and would hate to lose one of the few we have. We thought we had found these on MPG one time and had identified the genus?? We'll have to look that up.

I figured it was time to
clean up some of the old unidentified moth pictures. The comment here got me going on it.

Moved from Moths.

Is this related to
and are they related to ?

Good question
they hold their wings the same.
