Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I think you have a challenging "job" here, you are expected to be a generalist in an area where there more than 2000 possible species. in addition, IDs in moths are confusing, often not well understood, and in many cannot be done relying on visual evidence alone. But I would think it is an interesting challenge and you have an opportunity to see a lot of specimens. You have taught me a lot.
