Moved from Moths. Thanks for confirming Ron!

My pleasure, Ted.

Ted, your IDs seem right, here and elsewhere.
If all you need is another pair of eyes to confirm, I'd be glad to provide same. While I don't know much about moths, I am good at pattern recognition.

Hello Ron!
I "recognize" some insects but it never hurts to get a second opinion because I do "miss" once in a while. I try to research and arrive at the name, however, moth like this one is a new insect for me so I am just making sure that it is what I think it is. So, yes, I appreciate any input that will help me to get to the correct ID. Thanks Ron!

Wonderful! I'll look for more of your images in Moths.
