Amphipoea pacifica

Amphipoea pacifica
Eddy Mountains, 3,650', Siskiyou County, California, USA
August 26, 2019
Size: FW = ~14 mm
I think this is Amphipoea pacifica, attracted to light. I think this moth is a good match for the pinned image at PNW and it matches the ID quite well. Note, the HW is more a yellow/pink and not gray like A. americana. The spots are quite bright and the orbicular spot is much brighter and more colorful than A. americana's. MPG shows this moth just north of my area.
