Thanks J.D.
I thought it might be the same as my other recent post, but it looked a little more stretched out to me. Maybe it's just the angle.

Hypenodes caducus

8422 – Hypenodes palustris?
I was wondering if this could be Hypenodes palustris?

One quick way to distinguish them, is the dark PM band in caducus points directly to the FW apex, whereas in palustris it follows more parallel with the outer margin, curving toward the costa rather than going toward the apex.

Thank You
Some of the All-Leps and BOLD images seemed to approach this to me but I see what you mean.

There is an example in the guide here that I though might be palustris, though I'm not even sure I am even in the right genus.

That one ...
... does appear to be palustris.

Thanks Again...
... for this and ID confirmation of Robert Zimlich's image!

Tom - apologies for cluttering you submission.
