Moved from Moths.

No apology needed! We have all done that.

Ellabella melanoclista
Well, we were watching the Super Bowl at the time...sounds like a reasonable reason for errors.

Ellabella melanoclista, #2349
The error was entirely my own, not Greg's. I blurted out an ID for his moth (conveyed privately), recalling something I had recently identified and uploaded--and simply got the name wrong. This is Ellabella melanoclista (#2349, Copromorphidae). I apologize for the error. It was certainly not my first, nor will it be my last!

Moved from Aon Moth.
