Euacidalia sp.? - Eumacrodes yponomeutaria

Might the white head and antenna qualify this specimen as Genus Eucidalia, possibly Hodges #7087 Euacidalia sericearia?

Moved from ID Request.

another possibility
Eumacrodes yponomeutaria - Hodges#7086

Good eye Marcia. Now I remember Stuart Marcus asking me if I had seen any of these right after his was ID'd by Ed Knudson. Mine is darker, but they do have shorter antenna which I noticed and this one looks JUST like John Schneider's specimen. I should have caught that!

Glad you made it through the holidays in one piece.

white head and antenna
is a feature of other geometrid genera as well; the description of Euacidalia is as follows: forewing slender, light to medium brown; PM line dark, inconspicuous, parallel to outer margin, continuing straight to costa; AM line faint, broken or consisting of only 2 or 3 spots; discal spot usually present but not prominent; hindwing similar to forewing, with pale fringe

I am not familiar with the Euacidalia genus, but maybe an expert can chime in here.
