I've been identifying these as albiceralis, but it's been brought to my attention that the pale/white PM line and the brown costa all the way to the apex of the FW much more closely resembles the BOLD barcoded specimen of floridalis from Sonora TX. I have seen seven of these at my site, and one that is a classic albiceralis with the distal costa all gray and a faint thin brown PM line
