Hodges #7151 - Scopula aemulata? - Scopula aemulata
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
October 31, 2018
Size: Wingspan ≈17mm
Attracted to black light. I had saved this one as Scopula compensata but that ID must be wrong: The PM line is too close to the outer margin and is slightly dotted, the abdomen is dotted, the wings are rounded and the moth is smaller than any of my compensata. Is it 7151 Scopula aemulata?

Thanks, Bob
