Tolype or Apotolype? - Tolype lowriei - male

Tolype or Apotolype? - Tolype lowriei - Male
Marin County, California, USA
September 25, 2009
Size: 20-22 mm length
Attracted to a blacklight. It looks like its wings are half the size they should be in order to get the moth off the ground.

Moved from Macromphaliinae.

Looks Like 7680 - Tolype lowriei
Pretty good match for specimen from Bohart Museum:
