  1. Olethreutes sp. for sure. Posted 8 months ago, modified 8 months ago
    1. The closest I've come so far is O. ferrolineana, but I don't think it's a match. Posted 8 months ago
      1. Are you sure you are looking at the right species? O. ferrolineana doesn't look near a match to me.

        Looks closer to Olethreutes tilianum or lacunana or permundana (but dissection is needed to differentiate I think?).

        1. Sorry, I maybe didn't word that right...I don't think it's a match, but it's the only similar one I could find in my moth book. Thanks for the suggestions, I'll check them out! Posted 8 months ago
          1. Oh, sorry I misunderstood! I'm a bit derpy this week. <3

            Let me know what you think of those possibles!

            1. No prob, lol. I definitely understand derp and am quite fluent myself ;P Posted 8 months ago
            2. Where did you read about dissection being needed to separate the species? I can't find that info. I think this looks like Olethreutes permundana, but that species isn't listed in my moth guide and I'm not finding much info online. Posted 7 months ago
              1. I'm not really sure on it either. I saw one person mention it in comments on BugGuide, but I haven't seen it elsewhere. I'd be inclined to think this is O. permundana as well. Posted 7 months ago
                1. Updating the ID. Thanks for your help <3 Posted 7 months ago
        2. The app I use also strongly suggests O. Permundana. Posted 7 months ago
          1. I think that species looks like a good match. Lisa mentioned above that dissection is needed to separate the species, but I'm not finding that info yet. Posted 7 months ago
            1. I'll try to find the link to that comment made on BugGuide (I found it after I IDed a similar one as O. permundana during moth week). I say we leave it at O. permundana for now? Posted 7 months ago
              1. No worries if you can't find it. I'm just curious and am trying to build my library of links that I visit for info. I mostly just use my books and then double check on bugguide, and so I miss out on details like this and species complexes, etc. Posted 7 months ago
                1. This was in the comments section of a photo, so it may be difficult for me to dig up. I regret not favoriting it! Posted 7 months ago
                  1. Ohh, okay. Yeah, don't bother. That would explain why I didn't see it on the species page. I rarely read the comments on BG photos. Posted 7 months ago
