Moved from Geometrid Moths.

This one caught my eye.

Looks like ....
Looks much like Anticlea multiferata

No problem
Actually I should stick with posting specimens for ID and not trying to make IDs myself. It's not my forte.

I appreciate your help.


Not so from my point of view. I think it helps to know what the submitter has considered.

Jack, I am really sorry to have bothered you. I looked long an hard for this one because I was fascintated with the "bubbled" Median line. I cannot remember what I was thinking when I posted the comment in error, but I don not see that same line ins A. multiferata which was the first species I could remember seeing.

Very sorry


Moved from ID Request.

Reminds me of ...
one of the carpet moth, but don't recognize. Someone more familiar with you fauna will surely know.
