Geometrid moth - Macaria granitata - Female

Porch light visitor.

Moved from ID Request.

Thanks Josiah.

A new one for me.

Genus Macaria for sure. I suggest . I like the picture of Bob Patterson's specimen here better for a comparison to your moth. Not all of them have that very dark patch near the costa on the PM line.

I agree. It looks like Macaria granitata to me.
