Moth - Acronicta perdita

Moth - Acronicta perdita
Cle Elum, Kittitas County, Washington, USA
July 18, 2017
Found along the Teanaway River. I am totally stumped on this one. Any ideas would be appreciated.

Moved
Moved from ID Request.

 
Aha! I think I got it.
Acronicta perdita I suspect. Or did Kyhl Austin already figured this out?

 
Yes
That’s where he placed it. I figured it was an Acronicta, but I wasn’t sure which. Kyhl moved it the the species page. Look at the info tab above the image to get there.

 
No problem. I had just noticed I had ID'd a moth
that looked similar to this one and while in the midst of writing that I notice Kyhl had moved it there.

 
Got it
I figured you knew, but I thought I’d check.

ID of this Moth…
So far, look into the Biston betularia. Very close…

 
Thanks for checking Bill
I see what you mean. Problem is, this moth has white underwings while Biston betularia has mottled black and gray underwings.

 
Correction
I meant hindwings, not underwings. Sorry.

 
Yes!
I was looking thru Catacola with peppered appearance like we do see! Thanks!
But look at this similar in the Lycia family…

 
This is not a geometrid
And your second guess looks just as wrong as your first. Also, Lycia is a genus, not a family. It’s not a Catocala either.

 
ID
Lmao. We see that .Thanks
