It’s been a rather pathetic summer on the cool insects front in Wellesley for me, but here are a couple of unassuming moths that showed up recently on our front door and that I’ve identified with the help of the What’s This Bug section of Reddit, a hangout for entomologists. More in Bob’s Bugs.
First up is a Sharp-Angled Carpet Moth (Euphyia intermediata). Cool name.
Next up: A Large Maple Spanworm Moth (Prochoerodes lineola).
As always, feel free to pass along pictures of any interesting critters you come across in Wellesley.
