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.

Gentlemen may cry, Peace, Peace-- but there is no peace. The war is actually begun!... Our brethren are already in the field! It is in vain... to extenuate the matter...but as for me, Give Me Liberty or give me death.
