Trichocerapoda strigata? - Trichocerapoda strigata
Cathedral Gorge State Park, Lincoln County, Nevada, USA
September 19, 2020
Size: ~13.5 mm TL
Found at the campground. Compare to images of Trichocerapoda strigata at Moth Photographers Group and Pacific Northwest Moths. The merged orbicular and reniform spots do not appear to be typical, however these spots do often touch one another with this species and other species within the genus. The size is right for strigata. The only member of the genus that I could not rule out is harbisoni because I could not find any images of it. The original description of that species by Mustelin (2006) is posted on Zootaxa but my log in is currently not working. Hoping somebody else can log in there and research that species.
