Haploa Colona
Thank you. What I think is most interesting is the location of the siting/photograph ie 45.25 degrees N by 76.48 W which is just a little northwest of Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. I have read somewhere (sorry) that the range for this moth is Virginia south to Florida.

Wish we knew the Haploa better
It seems they can be variable. If we were to choose we would say this is The Neighbor, H. contigua

We unlinked your images.
They are clearly not images of the same individual.

Thanks. I'm just learning how this works. I certainly agree the two were not the same individual. Is it Haploa Colona?
