Latest Edit 14 Sept (975 observations)
.

Nearly all Moth Observations without a decent ID are brought together here

.
.
ONLY MOTHS WITH the ID Heterocera are added. A few have other IDs without the likely banner
These moths are here to gain a better ID.
.
Please add a Species or Genera or Family or SuperFamily.
PLEASE add a comment if you have any thoughts about progressing, specially if you think the Observation is pretty impossible.
I'd also like opinions about the Project itself and future ones for Spiders, Wasps, Worms and the like. We, Helen HB and I, seem to have worked in isolation here and may not feel like doing it again,
.
It is possible your ID will not attract the Likely Banner and if so, will probably need an agreement, no bad thing.
Once the new ID becomes likely, then the Ob will disappear from this project
.
Moths can stay in this project forever - and so there will be no need to act on impossible ones. But I appeal to the moth-ers to consider adding the ID Heterocera to all UNIDENTIFIED moth Observations which are over a few WEEKS old.
.
Generally speaking, moths that arrive here are the result of the Poster (unkindly called Users) not trying hard enough, giving us poor pictures, rarely more than one, poorly focussed or camera 'shook', NO 'it might be this' ID or Descriptive notes and often on bad backgrounds. You must all do better!
