Subject: Pilocrocis ramentalis

Hello Fellow Lepidophiles,


On Oct 18 & 22 I found Pilocrocis ramentalis (Pyralidae) here on eastern Long Island, NY, for the first time in 5 seasons of intensive observation. (My only other record for the species is from Naples, FL.) Forbes (1923) lists the northern limit of this species' range as New York and states that, "Northward this species has only been taken in the fall." This suggests that the species is a vagrant from the south. So here is my question & request: Does anyone know of this species occurring regularly in the eastern US north of, say, Virginia? I would appreciate hearing about records of this species north of Virginia. What is the farthest north that the species is known to occur regularly?
