Moved from Common Angle.

Not Sure
The hind tibia does not appear to be right for aemulataria.

Not Common Angle

We think you are right. After some study we agree that it is not Common Angle but we can't ID it. We don't have any other photos that would help. Perhaps we should just delete it. What do you think?

Not Yet
These images showing the underside of the wing are valuable. Do you have anymore images? The underside of the hindwing matches Carol Wolf's MPG image of M. fissinotata but that may be misidentified. The upper side of the left forewing in Carol's image is partially visible and it does not seem to match others on the page very well.

I see now that what I thought was the underside of the right forewing is actually the upper side of the left wing. The right wing is damaged with much of the apex missing. This image is probably identifiable though it may may limited value in the end.

Thank you

In looking at Carol Wolf's photo on MPG we can see the resemblance to our image. If it is identified as M. fissinotata, that would be an extension of its range according to BG data. Unfortunately we don't have any other images.

Thanks for your help and your comments.
