Entephria takuata - Triphosa californiata

Entephria takuata - Triphosa californiata
Skull Valley, AZ, (WSW of Prescott 10 miles), Yavapai County, Arizona, USA
April 14, 2007
Found on side of house @ night near a light. This Moth's wings looks almost like rattlesnake scales, that could come apart with a gentle shake.

Moved from Entephria takuata per J.D. Roberts' correction.

Changed my mind
I decided to revisit this group, I noticed my ID here is incorrect. I should have paid closer attention. Plus I can't find any info that suggests E. takuata is in Arizona. My apologies.

I believe this is actually a worn Triphosa californiata
