Moved from Neofelderia rata.
Thanks Edward.

Neoalbertia constans
This appears to be Neoalbertia constans, based on the inside edge of the left hindwing, which fortuitously overlaps the right forewing due to imperfect wing closure. One sees from the images of spread specimens at Moths of Southeastern Arizona that this edge is mostly orange in N. rata, but entirely black in N. constans. Orange in the hindwing of the latter is confined to a narrow strip along the leading edge that does not extend to the inner edge as it does with N. rata

Moved to Neofelderia rata - Hodges#4626.1
Moved from Neoalbertia rata.

Tom - This image won't stay put. Expect it to move again! The website, I referenced below, places this species in Neoalobertia. I don't know if that is an error. All-Leps places it in Neofelderia and J. D. Roberts calls it Neofelderia as well.

Moved from Lycomorpha grotei.

Neoalbertia sp.?
How do I eliminate Neoalbertia as a possibility? I'm looking at examples on Moths of SE Arizona of N. rata and N. constans here.

You Can't....'Cause I Goofed and this is really....
