Micro-Moths and Fungus Gnats


This might be Ypsolopha falciferella, but I have no confirmation. ID help is always appreciated.  About 10mm.


Comparison with examples on BugGuide were encouraging. It’s hard for me to get these micros in focus.

Here are two Fungus Gnats, the green-winged on April 15 and the one with black bristles on its Thorax on April 16. I don’t have ID for them beyond Diptera.  Used guidebooks and Google to get that far.  The larvae are detritivores.
