Virbia fragilis

Virbia fragilis
Nebo Creek, Utah County, Utah, USA
July 22, 2005
Size: 29 mm wing span
Is this Virbia fragilis (Hodges #8125) or V. aurantiaca. On both it seems the markings on the forewing and hind wings vary quite a bit. There are a lot more records of fragilis throughout Utah as compared to a few records of aurantiaca which seems to be more of an Eastern species. Your help is very appreciated.
