Came to porch light. To me the forewing appears to be C. minima, but the color of the hindwing makes me think C. bicoloraria.

Delmar,

I think I had C. minima Saturday night and the UID form as well. Will send the UID to BOLD. Unfortulately I did not get the specimen of C. minima, but will post my sheet picture. I think yours is the same.

Moved from ID Request.

I'm inclined to say C. minima
My Tucson brown bicoloraria tend to be paler on the forewing, but I'm not certain that's a regular feature.

Interesting question. I think Maury's looks like it could have a peach hind-wing. I went onto BOLD and the examples there look to have peach hind-wings, but only Maury could say for sure.
