Herpetogramma or related genus?



Bob probably is right
I never saw Omiodes indicata but I have looked at it in MPG to assure that I had the ID of my Salbia haemorrhoidalis right. Looking at it again now I think this one must be Omiodes indicata. Anyway, take this with a grain of salt.

Moved from ID Request.

Bean-leaf Webworm Moth
This looks like Omiodes indicata. (eastern range?) On the fore-wing, check the PM line, compared to the look-alikes, near the costal edge. On the hind-wing, the PM line is not bowed inward, near the edge.
