Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Dissected by JoAnne Russo. Two of the other Eupithecia I sent were also palpata and another ended up being P. rectangulata. I’m glad there are people dedicated enough to dissect these moths! It’s super interesting to see what they are. I’d like to learn eventually, but that’ll be after I’m done with school. Thanks for the notes! I update my Acronicta to falcula on iNat as well, seems like a rather significant find! Makes sense that it’s more coverage of different habitats, is there a particular month that sees more southern strays? I remember last October I had a few that seemed out of the ordinary.

Coordinator notes: Dissection seems like a very useful skill for the moths that are difficult to ID. On another note, I made a correction in ID for 1328880. Received a flag notice from BAMONA regarding the ID. I added the comment to the page along with my comment.
