Idia litter moth
Not certain which species.

It's particularly helpful for moths with wavy/jagged lines to be facing upward in the dorsal view. Comparison of line shape is tougher when the lines have more features, and so having the moths in the same orientation makes the comparison much easier.

Had technical difficulties trying to post a flipped photo, will try again later. Thank-you Timothy for the ID help!
