These are easy to mix up. This is only the second image of this species from BC.
Note, it lacks any dark shading on the sides of the thorax and the fringe is slightly checkered. Check the info page for more details about the ID.

 
Thanks for that. Reassessing
Thanks for that. Reassessing my images, I think I may have more intertexta than porcelaria but neither is common here.

I would probably have missed it anyway, but your checklist attached to image #1638948 (https://bugguide.net/node/view/1638948) would be helpful out front on the species page.
