I'm no expert, but this individual looks a lot like this one: But since there are no other images in the guide of that species west of the rocky mountains, and there is hardly any record of it in the winter, it makes me skeptical, considering that this has a been a very common moth around here lately. I'm sure somebody here can make a more educated guess than I can?

A new MONA Fascicle/monograph covering this group should be in the mail by now. There are a number of new species described in it. Perhaps a more precise match will turn up in it.
