Northern Petrophora - Petrophora subaequaria

Northern Petrophora - Petrophora subaequaria
Powell Marsh Wildlife Area, Vilas County, Wisconsin, USA
May 31, 2009
Saw quite a number of these moths flying low to the ground and landing in the grass the day we were at Powell Marsh. Looks like a geometrid, but I'm not sure which one. Any help would be appreciated.

6804 - Petrophora subaequaria
Faint pattern seen in subterminal area beyond pm. line is characteristic for this species. (no rsvp, thanks)
