Retinia metallica?
This looks more like Retinia metallica to me (1).

 
Are these good?
Should I add some of Carl's images at MPG? I can't find where he or you decided metallica was good.

 
Disregard
Michael Sabourin agrees and I have added a few to MPG. Thanks!

 
Thanks, Steve!
I can 'stop taking aspirin' for this species, I reckon. ;-)

Thanks, James!
Perhaps. ;-) I've wrestled with the ID on this moth for three years now. I collected a few examples last year (2014), and passed them along to our resident moth expert Jerry Fauske. He wanted to dissect them to determine the correct identity. Of course, I'm hoping that this may be a yet-to-be-described species of Retinia, but that is, of course, unlikely. I hope to hear back from Jerry soon, since I just sent a PM alerting him about the 2015 batch. Thanks for your tentative ID, James! You may be right!
