Reminds Me of an Emerald But It Is Brown - Nemoria bistriaria

Reminds Me of an Emerald But It Is Brown - Nemoria bistriaria
Near Ruraldale, Upshur County, West Virginia, USA
April 20, 2005
The delicacy and translucence of the wings reminds me of an Emerald, but it is brown! Help with ID appreciated.

7046 - Red-fringed Emerald Moth - Nemoria bistriaria
.... and a super photo of the spring form. Later indivuals will be the more-expected green versions. You may actually see both forms at the same time, just to add to the confusion.

 
Thanks, Bob!
Thanks, Bob. Now I will look for the green version, if this cold weather ever abates!
