6636 – Vinemina catalina?
The two species are similar but with Vinemina catalina the am. line touches the median band. If I understand the description correctly, the am. line is the thin most basal line and the median band is the thick dark line about a third of the way from the base. I think it is possible that you have both species posted on BugGuide.

Also, you have a possible undescribed species near opacaria at BOLD, Sample ID: CMAZ-0565, which is in its own BIN, BOLD:ADA5765. Is that specimen posted at BugGuide? If so, it might make sense to note that on the submission page.
