Coordinator notes: I sent Rob this link recently. Thought you might be interested, too. I think this taxonomic split with Herpetogramma abdominalis has happened on iNat but I'm not sure what BG will do about it. I was wondering why a moth identified on iNat with previously very few sightings and nowhere near Wisconsin was suddenly showing up in Wisconsin identified as Herpetogramma aquilonalis on iNat so I started searching and found the link.
