Apamea vulgaris - Common Apamea? - Lapara bombycoides
Lake Torment, East Dalhousie, Kings County, Nova Scotia, Canada
June 30, 2016
Size: ~25mm TL
Of the several look alikes (A. lignicolora, Airy Apamea, Confused Woodgrain-Morrisonia etc), A. vulgaris is the one that looks most like this moth to me. Not a lot of images on BG to compare to. MPG has sightings in my area but also lacks many images. Opinions?

Moved- Not Noctuidae, Sphingidae
Moved from ID Request.

This is Lapara bombycoides.

Thanks. I should have recognized this as a Sphindx moth.
