Annaphila decia
Second opinion has just come in per David Ferguson. I'm convinced after checking at Pacific Northwest Moths, also the CBIF link provided by Jason, and finally Cal Moth Database. Thanks to both of you, Jason and David!
Moved from Annaphila.

Annaphila sp.
This is one of the Annaphila species. I'm not 100% certain of which species, although I would lean towards Annaphila decia. It's probably safe calling this Annaphila cf. decia. However, without a second opinion, it may be safer to leave it at genus level.

 
Thanks!
This is great, Annaphila looks right ( also see your point re. decia being a candidate). Since I don't know what variations exist, I'll follow your advice to keep it at the genus level for now.
