First Eratoneura externa in North Carolina

October 29th around 8:30pm, I turned on a light outside to attract insects since it was warmer than usual that day. A lot of moths and hoppers came to the light so I was able to get photos of many different species and got multiple firsts for my lifelist. I got lucky and was able to get a picture of a Eratoneura externa which is the first observation of the species in North Carolina.

First research grade Megaelia aurea observations

On September 30, 2020 I was under a tree collecting cicada sheds from a recent hatch and noticed a small fly. I took a quick picture thinking nothing of it and added the photo to INaturalist later that day. I woke up the next morning and someone identified it as Megaelia aurea which had no research grade observations at the time. That same day I went back under the same tree to see if I could find another and I was able to get a picture of one before it flew away. I am hoping to find some more next year but for now, I will just need to plan out new areas I could try to find some.
