Oligocentria? - Oligocentria semirufescens

Oligocentria? - Oligocentria semirufescens
Damascus, Clackamas County, Oregon, USA
July 28, 2016
This one looks very similar to Oligocentria semirufescens, except it seems to have a larger black mark, and is without the brown at the posterior end and the reddish wash across the top.

Thanks,
Phil

Moved
Moved from Prominent Moths.

Think it's probably a paler Oligocentria semirufescens
Colour may be partly affected by the light. Was it shot near a blue light?

 
Lighting
This moth was photographed by a regular porch light (an amber color if anything), and further illuminated by a flashlight. I remember that it was hard to get a picture of the moth with any contrast.
