Two-spotted Crambid - Ategumia ebulealis

Two-spotted Crambid - Ategumia ebulealis
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
September 9, 2012
Size: ~18 mm wingspan
At outdoor light. The linked image of the moth with closed wings was taken after a night in the refrigerator. A puzzler: the two spots on the abdomen remind of #5272 Herpetogramma bipunctalis but the patterns of the wings don't match. The wings look more like those of #5145 Diacme mopsalis but it has a black line rather than spots on the abdomen. My ID search obviously failed.

Please do not remove photos when replacing the photo. Simply click edit and upload the new photo changing date, etc. Frassing and reposting removes all the comments from the original post. This photo is fine and was being used on the species page under identification. There are not many photos of this species in the guide.

 
Thanks - next time I know!
Well, I seem to remember to have read that one shouldn't delete posts but rather frass them in case someone objects to the removal. I am just one of those who doesn't want to clutter BG with redundant images. In this case I added a comment to the remaining linked image that provided relevant information that was removed by frassing.

Nice addition to the guide.
Thanks!

 
Thank you!
Oh boy - I revealed my inadequate detective work on MPG and BG that apparently left out Machele White's posts - or perhaps I missed her moth. But why is it not in the Diacme genus?
