Pheosia californica

Pheosia californica
La Grande, Union County, Oregon, USA
May 4, 2016
Attracted to lights.

The key in the new fascicle says
Forewing with a thin, oblique white mark at the base of large black subapical dash - rimosa
Forewing with a small white quadrate bar at base of black subapical dash - californica
Yours seems to have a white quadrate bar = californica
The range maps don't show rimosa in Oregon or California. All the Oregon specimens they examined keyed to californica
