Moth Possibly of Genus Eufidonia - Eufidonia discospilata

Moth Possibly of Genus Eufidonia - Eufidonia discospilata
Zurich Bog near Newark, NY, Wayne County, New York, USA
June 2, 2007
Size: About 1 inch across
This moth seemed to be active during the day and fairly abundant when this photo was taken. Zurich Bog is an acidic bog with mainly coniferous trees.

Moved from Powder Moths.

A Powder Moth in the Genus Eufidonia....
...but I am not certain as to the species.

 
Almost (100%) certainly
Eufidonia discospilata. This one is a bog species, also barrens and heaths. The other 2 species are essentially forest species. The Info page on the genus is not correct, will change when I have time.

 
Eufidonia discospilata
I must say that my photo doesn't look much like the one photo of Eufidonia discospilata on bugguide.net. I found some other photos on the Internet. The species seems rather variable in its markings. It also looks a lot like Eufidonia convergaria.
