Papaipema  arctivorens or baptisiae? - Papaipema

Papaipema arctivorens or baptisiae? - Papaipema
Pine Brook, Isanti County, Minnesota, USA
August 19, 2020
Size: WS ~ 39.5 mm
With reported wingspans of 27-39 mm and 35-38 mm, respectively, I haven't been able to decide.
Certain features of the reniform cluster do seem a better match for arctivorens, though. And apparently the PM line is "much closer" to the outer margin in arctivorens than in baptisiae, though I haven't yet gotten a grip on that.
