Something Like Apotomis capreana? - Annaphila diva

Something Like Apotomis capreana? - Annaphila diva
Rhododendron, Clackamas County, Oregon, USA
May 1, 2016
Hi, everyone

This moth seems to be the totally wrong shape for Apotomis capreana, but the coloration seems to be similar. Is there another species that I missed that has both the right shape and the right coloration?

Thanks,
Phil

It's actually a small noctuid which flies in spring.

 
Small Noctuid
Wow, that is a small noctuid. It wasn't even as big as a Venusia. Thanks for your help!

Yes, it is pretty small for a noctuid.
I had quite a search the first time I found one - was looking in all the wrong places! Thought it was a small Geometridae at first, but no. We see it here quite often in the spring.
