Observation date: August 23, 2022
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. This one has had me puzzled for a long time. Submission # 1340267 was IDed on BG as Dioryctria reniculelloides. My submission #1262128 also seems to have the same fawn color, so I would guess is also reniculelloides. It is not as good a photo and was never IDed to species level on BG.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: February 03, 2023
Coordinator notes: ID based on several photos on BG and iNat. This species is another one with variations. The following one seems like a good match - https://www.inaturalist.org/observations/34264764 With more photos being added to iNat I think the task of identification will get easier.
