Arizona Moth - Papaipema sp. - Papaipema

Arizona Moth - Papaipema sp. - Papaipema
Rustler Park, Chiricahua Mts. , Cochise County, Arizona, USA
August 29, 2018
Apparently no species of Papaipema has been recorded in MPG for Arizona (can't possibly be true?). This comes closest to a California species Papaipema sauzalitae. Seeking ID help. Found on sheet with UV black light high in the Chiricahuas.
