Streaked Coleophora Moth
Coleophora cratipennella

Observation date: August 11, 2022
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight in a backyard bordered by woodland. For submission 1338941, I looked at Diarsia jucunda, D. rubifera, and D. rosaria, I thought jucunda was the best match because it generally has a stronger ST line. For submission 1278256, there is a strong median line between reniform spots, that feature does not appear on any rubifera specimens that I have seen, but does appear on jucunda photos.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: After comparing your moths with a selection from MPG I changed 1338941 back to D. jucunda. For 1338941 I'm tending towards D. rubifera for now so moved the file back to pending. Hope one of the experts on iNat will ID.
