Author's notes

The images show 5 of the 22 different individual moths sighted on the same evening on various windows of our house. Very different patterning on the wings but if my identification of these moths as Oxycanus dirempta (Variable Oxycanus) is correct, this is to be expected!

I think the fourth one may be O. silvanus. Do the antennal rami look l;onger to you?

Yes. The rami on the fourth one are longer than the others and are broad to the tip of the antenna, which would fit with O. silvanus. I will remove the image of this fourth moth and make a new posting of it.
