White-band Moth - Cleora sublunaria - male

White-band Moth - Cleora sublunaria - Male
Minden, Haliburton, Ontario, Canada
May 5, 2008
Size: On my forefinger
This lovely little moth with a white band is resting on my finger. Can someone ID it please?

Moved from Cleora.

Moved from Geometrid Moths.

Cleora sp.
It's a Cleora species... The white band is normally indicative of C. projecta (the Projecta Gray), an uncommon moth, but I'm not sure whether Ontario is within their range. I'd wait for a second opinion on species. :)
