  • Lynn Scott's Isa textula image
    15 and 17 July 2002 This species was posted as Mystery Moth 3 in April 2002 after I had unsuccessfully searched for its identity It was quickly suggested by Dr A W Thomas formerly of Natural Resources Canada that it was not as I had originally wondered a noctuid but rather belonged to one of the micro families Larry Line of Maryland was unable to identify it but provided photographs of a similar unknown for comparison When in July 2002 I began photographing specimens that appeared similar to Isa textula I did not immediately relate these to Mystery Moth 3 but after looking at Larry Line s photographs began to wonder about the possibility that all of these were Isa textula on the basis of illustrations in Handfield and Covell One of the difficulties has been that the moth is difficult to photograph without shine on its wings that sometimes gives a grainy appearance and sometimes affects a whole area of the wing that happens to be at a different angle to the light of the flash To the best of my knowledge Isa textula had not previously been observed in the Ottawa area moreover Handfield reported it as a

  • Lynn Scott's Nymphula ekthlipsis (Elophila ekthlipsis) image
    the name Elophila ekthlipsis was based on comparison with specimens in the Canadian National Collection in Ottawa and on the descriptions in Munroe E The Moths of North America North of Mexico Fascicle 13 1 Pyraloidea Pyralidae Part London E W Classey 1972 1974 and in Forbes William T M The Lepidoptera of New York and Neighboring States Primitive Forms Microlepidoptera Pyraloids Bombyces Ithaca New York Cornell University 1923 Nymphula ekthlipsis has boldly patterned wings with bands of yellow bordered with dark gray brown contrasting sharply with the white ground color The cream colored abdomen is striped with dark gray brown The pattern on the hindwing is similar to that of the forewing but without as much yellow banding near the base of the wing Overall this moth has a delicate and somewhat luminous appearance According to Munroe the length of the forewing is from 11 to 13 mm Little appears to be known about the life cycle of Nymphula ekthlipsis but Forbes 1923 indicates that the larva lives in an oblong case on sedges My records to date for Nymphula ekthlipsis each date representing the night of are in the table below Month 01 02 03 04 05 06

  • Lynn Scott's Munroessa icciusalis image
    and white The dominant color on both forewing and hindwing is yellow sometimes quite bright but often a dull light yellowish brown or buff On the forewing much of the white occurs in the median typically with two irregular white areas at the costa and a round white spot in the lower half of the median These white areas are partially bordered with dark brown to black lines There is also an irregular white subterminal band bordered in dark brown to black along its outer edge The hindwing pattern is similar but without the round white spot in the median The fringe on both wings is somewhat checkered with yellowish buff white and brown The abdomen is whitish with yellow stripes There is considerable variability from one specimen to another and Munroe 1972 notes that the black lines seem to be better developed in southern specimens than in northern ones Covell 1984 indicates a wingspan ranging from 1 6 to 2 6 cm for this species According to Covell 1984 the larvae of Munroessa icciusalis make cases out of plant parts and feed on a variety of aquatic plants including buckbean duckweed eelgrass pondweeds and sedges My records to date
