Aaron, thanks for catching this. The info pages may need some updates. I'm looking at some of the DNA verified images and I will look for more ID info, since we don't have much for discriminating these from Cyclophora benjamini.

Cyclophora myrtaria: ♂ -- vs. -- Cyclophora packardi:

Myrtaria?
I think this may be C. myrtaria, based on the positioning of the fifth dot from the costa on the PM line of the FW.
