Maple Looper - Parallelia bistriaris
Maplesville, Chilton County, Alabama, USA

This was a dark brown moth that had the outline of two orbicular rings just below the AM line. Most striking, though, was that between his PM line and the outer margin he was light tan with a salmon color closer to the outer margin, which contrasted sharply with the dark brown above it. He also had apical streaks starting at the apices and continuing to about 40% of the distance to the PM line. They had dark brown shading costally. His subterminal line seemed to be a series of small brown dots and his terminal line was thin, brown, and slightly scalloped. He had light gray fringe. He looks like several around Hodges#8446, but the relatively straight AM line doesn't seem to fit them.
