I have no idea what this one is. Would appreciate help very much.

Tentative movement, see comments on this image
I wonder if it might be Lacinipolia palilis or close. Moved from Owlet Moths.

Kyhl, I have always thought these looked like the ones I had tested as Lacinipolia palilis, Now that more Undescribed Perigeas have been placed, I notice a difference in the profile of the head.


Moved from Owlet Moths.

Tentative placement based on Carol Wolf's ID.

Moved from ID Request.

Carol, I had forgotten about this one I sent to BOLD and did get an answer. You might look at my #1086285. It might look like a variation.

Hello Carol,

I hope you get an ID. It is one of my "recurring mysteries." I see them every fall.

Hi Ann,
Maybe it is one that doesn't have a name yet. We saw them several places last fall. I am finally working through all the photos from that trip and putting quite a few on BG. I have several that don't have pages and I guess I have forgotten how to request a new page. Most I just put on at genus level in hopes someone would find them and make a page.

I think is VERY variable. I have only posted one, but it was too extremely nice to really look like yours. I have MANY in my files that I think are all versions of the same moth. My only post was . It sometimes exhibits yellow like yours and sometimes is not marked as well as yours and this one. Very strange. Terry Hibbitts has also posted at least one. Maybe someday I will link several to see if that helps.
