Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Porch light. 69 degrees. TL 11mm. I included the first picture next to the old porch light to show a second black spot that is usually right above the main bold white streak. The second picture after I caught it was right before I dropped it and broke its beak; sorry, but I have been trying for a long time to get the right picture to id these moths in my area. The second picture shows the long bold white streak with a lower fork and the identifying small black dot below it. Below this is its straight white line; and below this line is the second fork coming off the main bold white streak. Or is this a Fissicrambus haytiellis? Do both have the larger black dot on top of the main bold white streak?
