Arizona Moth for ID - Hydriomena morosata

Arizona Moth for ID - Hydriomena morosata
Rustler Park, Chiricahua Mountains, Cochise County, Arizona, USA
May 22, 2022
This was one of those severely annoying Geometer moths that when found refuse to flatten so the upper wing pattern could be seen. It was always wings up like a butterfly displaying the undersides as seen here. Only refrigerator cooling got it to flatten for the other images.
