  1. Olethreutes sp. for sure. Posted 11 months ago, modified 11 months ago
    1. The closest I've come so far is O. ferrolineana, but I don't think it's a match. Posted 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 months ago
                1. Updating the ID. Thanks for your help <3 Posted 11 months ago
        2. The app I use also strongly suggests O. Permundana. Posted 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 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 11 months ago
