Unidentified (as of November 19) moths from Devils River at Dolan Creek

Associate with this post are a number of moths that I have so far been unable to identify. If anyone knows any of these, or can help narrow them down some more, that would be wonderful! I know how much time this has taken me to get tentative IDs for all the other moths from this trip, so I very much appreciate all the help so far and in the future. In the meantime, I'll keep working on them.

The moth diversity on this trip was amazing to me, and it was fun to do some biogeeking after-hours during the field trip.

October 28-29, Devils River at Dolan Falls trip

During a Karst Hydrogeology and Geomorphology class field trip, we also made lots of biological observations, especially at night with a moth light. The observations related to with this post are mostly moths, and the number of moths and other critters attracted to the light each night was simply amazing!

If you would like to see these observations, you can search my observations for the dates October 28 and 29.

I'll also create a post that is associated with the moths that I could not figure out IDs for using the Moth Photographers Group and Bugguide websites. Some of these are real stumpers for me, even though they look like they should be easy!

I was privileged to have Alan Cressler join us, and he took a number of amazing photographs of critters during our night walks, as well as landscape photos. Those can be found here:

As always, it is an amazing experience to stay at the Devils River, and I sincerely thank The Nature Conservancy for allowing me to return to this area with my classes to learn about water in a karst desert environment.
