Blacklighting For Moths - Oct 1-10 (Full EntoJournal Series on Blog)

I was only able to blacklight for two days out of the following weeks, but I sure got enough new species for quite a while!

This fall so far has been weird, sometimes in a good way. During the first few weeks of fall and late summer, I had been (and still) am recording waaaay more species compared to this spring and summer. I honestly have no idea what's causing this!

I saw many new species and many returning visitors over at the light. Here are some of the species I saw that were past visitors to the UV & MV light.

  1. - Wedgling Moth (Galgula Partita) | count 1 (Sp #1
  2. - Armyworm Moth (Mythimna unipuncta) | count 1
  3. - Filbertworm Moth (Cydia latiferreana) | count 16-ish, nice to see these always!
  4. - European Sallow Button (Acleris hastiana) | count 3
  5. - Protorthodes melanopis (No Common Name) | count 2, love these ones and their oval patterning.
  6. - Subterranean Dart (Feltia subterranea) | count 2
  7. - Somber Carpet Moth (Disclisioprocta stellata) | count 1
  8. - Green Cutworm Moth (Anicla infecta) | count 1, some of them can have really neat patterns.
  9. - Large Paectes Moth (Paectes abrostoloides) | count 1, I had been wishing to see one of these again! Yay!

Other Bugs

  1. Arizona Mantis (Stagmomantis limbata) | count 3, I think the season will be finishing soon?
  2. California Anglewing (Microcentrum californicum) | count 3, not always handled but welcomed visitor

That's the end of my sneak peek EntoJournal series! You can find the full version (including the new and unidentified species) on my blog! To all the people who have ID'd my observations, thank you so much for all the help! It is welcomed warmly! :-)
