Orange feather moth - Anania extricalis

Orange feather moth - Anania extricalis
Chilton County, Alabama, USA
September 16, 2018
ID suggestion: Ostrinia sp.

Moved from Anania.

Moved from Anania leuschneri.

Timothy Reichard has studied these species with Hugh McGuinness pretty thoroughly and believes that the absence of a hindwing am. line would make extricalis more likely. This seems supported by descriptions I could find as well as BOLD images. They feel that without the moth in hand, it is difficult to be certain.
