Sharp-angled Carpet updated

The Sharp-angled Carpet (Euphyia unangulata) was once thought to be a holarctic species and this scientific name was applied to the North American and European moths. Now, the North American moth is considered a separate species: Euphyia intermediata. So, all Euyphyia unangulata records were moved to E. intermediata and E. unangulata was removed from the database.
