Even using the best reference material can sometimes cause confusion. These next two images are of the same species, the Ipsilon Dart (Agrotis ipsilon), but most references show only one profile.
Some critters are extremely tiny. This next one is a mere 3-4 mm long, and looks at first like a fly. Actually it turns out to be a female Braconid Wasp of the Euphorinae family.
Some critters are large and bumbling. This large dark beetle is well over 2 cm in length. It is a member of the water scavenger beetle genus known as Hydrophilus. There was no water within several hundred metres of where I was located, and I had several of them visit my black light set-up, so this species is clearly a hardy flier.
