Bruce Spanworm or Fall Cankerworm? - female

Bruce Spanworm or Fall Cankerworm? - Female
Buckingham, Bucks County, Pennsylvania, USA
December 15, 2014
Size: 9.6 mm head-abdomen
Found on the trunk of Acer rubrum.
Location is the same as that of a male Operophtera bruceata that I found 3 weeks earlier

so perhaps this is the same species. I don't know how to distinguish the female from Alsophila pometaria. I could not find any eggs.
