As I was not on the list last year I was interested to see these records. I
and others
watched Noctua pronuba go from one specimen record in about 1990, to a now
very common species.

I would be interested to know the locality of the PA record. I have not had
the opportunity to collect in PA and wondered whether it was in the state.
