Not sure about ID

Started the 2022 City Nature Challenge with a lot of blacklighting. I had five sheets set up in different areas, mostly lit with cheapy DJ blacklights connected to USB powerpacks (the kind used to charge phones). This observation is from sheet one described below.

1: Mitchell's Landing campground, first campground area. Bioquip blacklight hooked up to the campground outlet.

Description

One of the best nights of blacklighting I have had so far! Temps were in the low 70's, there was some light wind, making for difficult photography at times but it wasn't too bad. Lots of bigger insects came to the first sheet so I didn't spend as much time on the tiny stuff and probably missed lots species. I also met a couple really cool guys that were into bluegrass music so I had crunchy tunes to go along with the blacklighting goodness.

I had two sheets set up, this photo is from the second sheet described below, which I didn't spend as much time at.

First sheet was at the first Mitchell's Landing Campground with an RV hookup and regular power sockets. I was using my Bioquip blacklight hooked up to the power there and also changed the position of the sheet ever so slightly so it was a little bit further from the big oak here and maybe was a little more exposed.
All observations from the first sheet: https://www.inaturalist.org/observations?nelat=25.75581877096547&nelng=-80.92848461106104&on=2022-02-28&place_id=any&swlat=25.755154439896867&swlng=-80.92983537153731&user_id=joemdo

Second sheet was in a random little area right off Loop Road that mostly had pines. Not an ideal setup but I didn't have a lot of time and wanted to try a new spot. I lit this sheet with two cheapy DJ blacklights.

Three sheets set up at Mitchell's Landing for blacklighting. Mosquitoes were pretty bad but the insect activity at the sheets was pretty good. Moonrise was around 5AM so I had no moonlight while out here. Very little wind/no rain although it rained earlier in the day. In other words conditions were about as good as they can get! This observation is from sheet two described below.

1: Mitchell's Landing campground, first campground area. Bioquip blacklight hooked up to the campground outlet.
