I think this is a different species from the two Ann posted.

Moved from Dagger Moths.

Looks like A. americana
All lines and spots match up. What do you think?

Thanks, Ann. I don't remember
Thanks, Ann. I don't remember if it was this tan or not. I use Picasa, and I just select the sheet to be the "neutral" color.

I posted some more of this same image. Images 2 and 3 are with a couple different parts of the sheet selected as the neutral. Image 4 is nudged toward the cool side. Let me know which you like best, and I'll replace the first image with that one and delete the rest.

Hi John, I think yours is the same species. Take a look at Bob Patteron's photo of 9200 on MPG. Your specimen has a larger reniform spot than mine and I like it better, but the color is off. Can you "gray up" this photograph? OR was it really tan?
