unknown moth - Hydriomena nubilofasciata

unknown moth - Hydriomena nubilofasciata
Aromas, San Benito County, California, USA
January 12, 2009
Size: ~18mm wingspan.
Came to black light. (live oak/chaparral habitat).

Moved from Hydriomena.

Hydriomena again
I think this is another of the Hydriomenas, but I can't figure out which one it is...

Right yet again Nina
IDed as Hydriomena nubilofasciata by All-Leps Barcode of Life. This seems to be a highly variable species.

Thank you Nina
for the genus ID.

Not a problem... it was fun detective work and I just couldn't decide between the two species options that looked possible for your specimen. Barcode of Life folks are really helping to clean up some of our pages where it was a toss up like this one. Nice job.
