Mythimna unipuncta features

I have found that this common moth is often improperly identified, but it's features are hard to describe. I made this simple guide to clarify things. I used one of the open images from the Smithsonian.

Agrotis ipsilon features

Again, another common moth whose features are hard to describe. Quite variable in appearance, but these are the basics. For type range, see http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=10663
