Nice one!
A dead ringer for Timandra amaturaria Wagner p.205(1). Now moved to another genus. See Cross-lined Wave. First larval image for us!

 
All -Leps still has this
in Timandra

 
Fortunately a search on that name will now show up this image
so it can be tracked down without too much problem. : ) I did think we were using All-Leps as our primary reference, though - any idea why this one would be moved?

 
Robin made the original species page
for and included a reference there to Nearctica

 
I did see...
several of these moths in the area while out that day.

Thanks again Hannah!

Wish I would have gotten a better picture :(

-
REALLY cool caterpillar!
GRRRRRRRRR on the copyright blocking the picture.

 
?
What do you mean "blocking the picture" ???


:)
I fixed that and added another image...

Thanks for your input Matt.
