Wondering if this is A. hemiophrys but not sure what I'm looking for to distinguish between it and americanus- yes- it's wild. west side of the northern Sable Island on Lake of the Woods (this time of year there are thousands of toads (mostly babies) there so this one caught my eye for being different)

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

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."

[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.

Gelechiidae. Photographed at Hudgin-Rose Property, Prince Edward County, Ontario on 21 July 2019. Small (TL about 5-6mm) and with a rather distinctive FW pattern and largely white head. However, in spite of trying quite hard I cannot place this one...

If ID is correct, and it seems pretty certain, this would be a first record for Canada. It is not shown on either MPG, BugGuide or iNat as occurring in Canada, although it does occur in Ohio.

First Canadian record of family/species, Epipyropidae/Fulgoraecia exigua.

Found Acanalonia conica with white growth on side of abdomen. I thought it was a fungus but it is actually a fuzzy looking caterpillar/larva, feeding on the planthopper.
