As the title implies, what are some species you have trouble ID’ing? Maybe ones with very few distinguishing features, ones that are usually hidden, or ones that look very similar to others? If you’ve had this problem, how did you figure it out?
Personally I find myself struggling to tell some of the geometer moths apart. I’ve spotted what I suspect might be bent-line grays or Canadian melanolophia moths before but I’m still feeling a bit unsure about them and I have yet to get any feedback on the posts which isn’t helping. How do you know a “bent-lined gray” isn’t actually a brown shaded gray?(https://www.inaturalist.org/taxa/222284) Or that an unadorned carpet moth isn’t secretly a bent-lined carpet? Moths are great and I still love them but these little guys make my life difficult at times :/
