SlugFest Continues ... I've looked thru all the Slug Moths posted in Data for Alabama, but don't see one quite like this. Could this be the Shagreened Slug Moth - Apoda biguttata? If so, this would be an addition for AL.

Shagreened Slug Moth - Hodges #4669
Moved from Slug Caterpillar Moths.

Congrats! While a bit worn, you have added a new species for Alabama.

 
Really?
Isn't this moth more like Apoda rectilinea? - This at least is what I want to call my moth but perhaps it is wishful thinking on my part because nobody apparently wants to confirm my pick.
