Eulithosia composita
I do not have the specimen. Image was sent to Bruce Walsh of Moths of Southeastern Arizona and he agrees with Eulithosia composita.

Moved from Moths to Eulithosia composita, for the time being anyway...

Well Yay!
It appears my best guess is at least in the ball park 8;)

I'm pretty sure it is
Eulithosia composita. If you have a specimen I can confirm it for you.

this one is a toughie for me
this one is a toughie for me ... I found a few yellow moths similar in profile, but with dark disc spots, which this one clearly does not have... so... after some hunting, this is the closest I can find

interesting SW moth!
Resembles Thioptera nigrofimbria but without the spots and the black fringe on this one continues further around the apex! Looking forward to the ID.
