Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

The coloration is very different from anything I have seen. All of mine are quite light with the exception of one. It is my understanding that it can be A. latiloma if there is white along the median line as is the case with this moth. I think it takes an expert to delineate the species.

Moved from ID Request. The tail end of Delmar's comment was cut off in the subject line. "4" is just the start of "4668".
