Comments & Identifications

Forewing coloration again suggests to M. macrurus, but I'm not sure what other traits to look for in the males. Definitely check the BugGuide page: http://bugguide.net/node/view/4158

I assumed males of both species would be present, and if they are, these are more likely to be atratus, since they are darker and more purply...but I'm not sure, lol.

...but, I think you're right, and it's the other way around, lol.
