Coordinator notes: I'm reasonably but not absolutely 100% certain of this ID based on MPG - see http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=9947 If this is indeed E. apiata, then it's probably resident in Massachussetts; there's sighting data in MPG in far southern Maine, and BOLD shows what looks to be Cape Cod. Neither location is far from Essex County. JRains
