Haploa sp - Haploa lecontei

Haploa sp - Haploa lecontei
East Dalhousie, Kings County, Nova Scotia, Canada

Size: 20mm long
H lecontei? Definitely not the clymene I saw here several years ago.

Moved from ID Request.

Haploa lecontei
This is indeed Haploa lecontei, LeConte's Haploa. The major difference between the two is underwing coloration: in the Clymene, it is yellow to orange, but in LeConte's it is white. However, the species is extremely variable, and there are many more forms of this moth. In general, if you see a Haploa sp. it's probably either a Clymene Moth or a LeConte's Haploa.
