Moth - Proteoteras aesculana

Moth - Proteoteras aesculana
Kirkland, King County, Washington, USA
August 26, 2016
Guessing Proteoteras obnigrana. Has four bumps that are a little bit hard to see. Not sure if they are diagnostic. Anyway, will submit two more I think might be the same species in case they help with the ID.

Moved, Proteoteras aesculana
Moved from ID Request.

Proteoteras for sure
But I would have thought this was aesculana.

 
I agree with your ID.
When I made the ID I was focusing on the side view of my last submission assuming all three were likely the same species. Thanks for the correction.
