[ncsc-moths] Re: Swammerdamia moth?

I found it!    I think I was looking for silver lines, rather than dots.  It's: 
Hodges 02837 Olethreutes astrologana The Astronomer Moth.

  There are some moths that drive me nuts, and I can't seem to let go.  Here is 
one of them.  Very small.  Came to black light.  I can't find this combination 
of dark and light bands with silver accents.  Hope I can drive you crazy too.

    Jean, I had given that one a long, close look, and it does bear a strong 
resemblance to my moth. But D. depressana shows a bit of difference in the 
white head, as I see it. The white on my moth has a pretty straight edge across 
the moth's "shoulders," while the marking on D. depressana dips downward on all 
the photos I have seen. I have yet to come across a photo that clearly matches 
those that I took. Thanks for helping me look for the answer. Maybe mine is a 
new species that has yet to be photographed! Or maybe it is in the witness 
protection program. At any rate, it is making me (us) work way too hard.

      This looks like Depressaria depressana, but that one is supposed to be 
only in NY and ONT.... recently introduced from Europe.

        I'm not sure if this message just sent or not. My email acted strange, 
so I am making sure that it goes.

        Lifers have been pouring in recently and it has been quite a bit of 
work to try to keep up. Sometimes I have more photos to work through than time 
to process them -- and I am retired! I have been going through the MPG plates 
for days trying to ID the attached moth and the best I can do is to give it a 
tentative ID of Swammerdamia caesiella. I hope someone among us can either 
confirm or correct my ID.

        A couple of nights ago I had two Luna moths (different parts of the 
property) and last night one in a third location. That was quite a treat.

        My recent lifers include:
        0301 Homostinea curviliniella
        0400 Tinea mandarinella 
        0708 Marmara fasciella
        1167 Blastobasis pulchella
        1221 Holcocera immaculella 
        1291 Coleophora laticornella 
        1455 Mompha stellella
        2039 Symmetrischema striatella
        2229 Battaristis vittella 
        2937 Phaneta parmatana 
        3004.1 Phaneta ambodaidaleia 
        3208 Notocelia rosaecolana 
        3375 Ancylis divisana 
        3521 Acleris semiannula
        3623 Argyrotaenia quercifolia 
        6299 Speranza coortaria 
        6582 Iridopsis vellivolata 
        7292 Rheumaptera prunivorata 
        8118 Virbia opella
        8924 Anagrapha falcifera
          
        I hope the rest of you are finding plenty of moths as well. This has 
been an amazing spring for me.
