Yep, I use that exact page as a reference all the time. It's great when you don't remember if genus X has 2 tails or 3.

If it's a bug I truly don't know where to start on, I generally use the mottled vs. plain wings, hind wing size, and # of tails to narrow it down to 4 or 5 genera.

But size, color, timing, etc. vary a lot from place to place and between individuals. So to decide between those final ones, off to troutnut I'll go. Look up your remaining options, there's good photography. Add some common sense. And you can almost always nail down the genus, and often you can make an educated guess on the species.

"He was despised and rejected by mankind, a man of suffering, and familiar with pain. Like one from whom people hide their faces he was despised, and we held him in low esteem. Surely he took up our pain and bore our suffering."

-- Isaiah 53:3-4 NIV
