What Lurks in the Night?

It was very warm tonight, into the 70s, which well above normal for April in the Ozarks. It had the insects out though so I decided to hang the black light and leave it out over night. These were still present this morning and I’ve labeled all of them that I have managed to identify.

Agreeable Tiger Moth (Spilosoma congrua)

Fiery Searcher (Calosoma scrutator)

Luna Moth (Actias luna)

White Dotted Prominent (Nadata gibbosa)

The rest of these I haven’t identified yet. If you happen to know any of them, please let me know.
