Default Three moths

These three are vexing me - I would appreciate it if someone could just point me in the right direction, I don't mind going through the images to get specific.Three moths-7605.jpg

And if I attached the images incorrectly I apologize - I have been away for a while.

Thanks
Tim

The first one looks like this Pink-barred Pseudeustrotia - Pseudeustrotia carneola - BugGuide.Net

Moth Photographers Group – Pseudeustrotia carneola – 9053

The second one could be really hard - offhand I'd say maybe a geometrid in the Boarmiinae because it reminds me of the tulip-tree beauty, but there are a lot of similar moths.

You're welcome - it's funny, I knew I recognized the last one but I still don't know what it is. I found this picture in my computer while looking for something else.

Certainly looks like it could be the same moth . . .

I'm trying to track down opinion on the big one; I'm in agreement that it looks like an Epimecis.

The large moth (#2) has been identified as a barberry moth, Coryphista meadii, by a member of the OH Lepidopterists.
