Hydriomena marinata

Hydriomena marinata
Pack Forest, near Eatonville, Pierce County, Washington, USA
July 10, 2009
Appears to be the same as Lynette's, probably the same individual, as we were all huddled around the same sheet:

I added this because it shows the hindwings, in case that is helpful in ID. (See comments.)

Search for insect photos from the 2009 BugGuide Gathering (gathering_2009).

Moved from Hydriomena.

Looks like Hydriomena marinata
I just posted several specimens of this species as ID'd with DNA from last summer. It is quite variable but pretty sure you have one. These were DNA matches against confirmed members of this species. There is still a strong similarity to H. californiata and I am posting some of those also. Take a look and see what you think. Btw it was a very common form out here at the coast.
