We have just added a further 14 images to the Fundy National Park,
New Brunswick, Canada, checklist. The total now stands at 134 images.
Today's images include 2 geometrids, 1 tiger-moth, and 11 owlet moths.
Several of these are not illustrated in Covell (1984) or are illustrated in
Covell in B&W.
The checklist numbers are those in Hodges et al. Check List of the
Lepidoptera North of Mexico.
# 6725 Euchlaena muzaria; not illustrated in Covell but is similar
to the more southern Obtuse Euchlaena
# 7182 Dysstroma citrata; not illustrated in Covell. The commonest
"Carpet" in Fundy Park and similar in appearance to the
Marbled Carpet in Covell.
# 8090 Painted Lichen Moth (Hypoprepia fucosa). This image shows the
characteristic yellow borders on the fore wings which are
not obvious in the image in my copy of Covell (Plate 12, 2).

# 9237 Interrupted Dagger Moth (Acronicta interrupta); illustrated

welcome any suggestions about the name of our northern beasts.
