This would be a new moth for Ontario (Canada?). This mine was graciously shown to DB and I by Eric Giles who had discovered it earlier in the week. Thanks... a wonderful find!

Marasmia trapezalis (Trapeze Moth). Photographed at Wilson Tract, Norfolk County, Ontario on 19 July 2020. A new moth for Ontario, and perhaps Canada? Thought at first to be Trapeze Moth (Cnaphalocrocis trapezalis), but size and appearance are at odds with it being this species. It was sitting on the very last egg carton at the bottom of one of the traps! A total surprise and not a moth I ever expected to see in Ontario. I had seen Trapeze Moth (Cnaphalocrocis trapezalis) just once before in GA a few years ago. This species is very similar to Cnaphalocrocis cochrusalis (Marasmia Moth) and I based the initial id on the fact that the lines on the FW and HW do not match up, ie. they are "stepped" and that the AM and PM lines are relatively close together at the inner margin of the FW. However, it should be noted that these markings may not always be solid id features. Observed with Michael King, Mary Gartshore and Peter Carson.

LepiLED light trap. Tentative ID but seems like a good match for this one (and none of the other Agonopteryx known from Canada):

http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=856

Kyle Johnson collected a specimen from Mackinac Co (MI) in a similar habitat on Sept. 18, 2018.

"sand dune ridges/wetland swales with scattered Larix-Pinus-Thuja-Picea-Betula woodland groves."

https://www.gbif.org/occurrence/2275095059

Perhaps a Canadian first?
@mhking?


[Sept 9, 2021 edit: Kyle Johnson commented:

'sure looks like it to me. Agonopterix lythrella is similar size and pattern (and flies around the same time), but with a distinct dark reddish cast.

Wow, surprising that is new to Canada, given collection efforts on Manitoulin Island and other places. Shows how much we don't know! I've taken it in a few other northern Michigan locations as well, in addition to Mackinac. Co. Should be sought elsewhere in Ontario, esp. near the border with Michigan.

This photo was identified by David W Droppers as Caloreas apocynoglossa https://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/sighting_details/1254539
which seems pretty far out of range (California & Montana according to BugGuide and Moth Photographers Group). In Ferris et al A Checklist of the Moths of Alaska the only Caloreas is called "Caloreas new species" with a note which reads: "The CNC has paratypes of a species that is being described by J. B. Heppner (monograph in preparation with projected publication in 2013)." I have not been able to find any work by Heppner on this.

I have also submitted this to BugGuide and will update this sighting if and when I get more information.
