The Unknowns!



Everything has to go in a box. If it's not in a box, I gotta put it in one. That's part of the obsession. "What's that?" "A moth." "What kind of moth?" Even this page has to be organized. It's a sickness.

I'll be adding photos of unknown species to this part of the website. Of course, they will be organized into groups. "Unknown things I think are Noctuids", "Unknown things I think are Geometrids", Unknown things I think are... I don't have a frellin' clue." Some I may have guesses for and am seeking conformation, most I just can't find in the resources I have available (mainly Covell, MONA, and online sites)... doesn't mean they're not there... I just can't find them.

Please help try to ID these guys (so I can stick them in a box). Check back often as more moths are added and, hopefully, identified.
