Lithophane contenta

Lithophane contenta
Eddy Mountains, 3,650', Siskiyou County, California, USA

Size: FW = ~18 mm
I think this is Lithophane contenta, attracted to light. This may be a male if these antennae are bead-like. I'm not sure. PNW has a good image and description. MPG shows this moth in my area. The lateral veiw shows the spots or dark patches around the orbicular spot well, I think.
