Himmelman's Plume Moth (Geina tenuidactylus) – Hodges#6092

BugGuide / MPG

This ID seems like the best fit because of the sparse white markings on the wings (Grape Plume Moth #6091 and Sheppard's Plume Moth #6091.1 are marked more heavily with white) and the white thorax. The latter does not seem to be a feature on the other two species. I don't know if these characters are significant for species ID, however.

Todd Dreyer has a nice side view of the same moth.

The greenish cast in my photo is due to a mercury vapor lamp on the other side of the sheet.

Along with the Ilia Underwing, this was definitely one of the highlights of East Brunswick's moth night.

Simple Wave (Scopula junctaria) – Hodges#7164

BugGuide / MPG

This poor wave moth was missing a chunk of one hindwing. It could also be a Large Lace-border (BugGuide / MPG), but most Large Lace-borders I've seen are more heavily marked than this individual, and this moth seems to lack some of the discal spots that are characteristic of that species.

Banded Tussock Moth (Halysidota tessellaris) – Hodges#8203

BugGuide / MPG

On one page, BugGuide suggests that this species can be identified from Sycamore Tussock Moth by its lack of rectangles along the costa. On another page, BugGuide says that adults of the two species can only be separated by genital dissection. So I think this ID is tentative.
