Looking for ideas on this "Gray". I've been through the ordinary "Gray" stuff - the purplishes, engraileds, porcelains, commons, melanolophias, etc. ,etc. Seems closest to Cleora sublunaria (Double-lined) but not really - though it does have double PM and basal lines. Unique feature seems to be the sharply angled median line at costa enclosing the discal spot. Within size range of the "Grays" in general. On sheet with UV black light.

Moved from Ennominae.
