Moved to Ellabella bayensis
Moved from Ellabella johnstoni.

Flight period seems to eliminate johnstoni as well as editha. Congratulations, it looks like we got this one!

Moved to Ellabella johnstoni
Moved from Ellabella editha.

Tentative ID. It is possible that this is E. bayensis as the host plant, Mahonia pinnata, is found in your area. That said, this matches the description as well as BOLD images for Ellabella johnstoni which is slightly larger.

Moved to Ellabella editha
Moved from Moths.

Tentative ID by Bob Patterson based in part on range maps.

2349.1 – Ellabella bayensis?
See image at Calphotos here.

Possibly Ellabella sp.
Looks something like 2348 - Ellabella editha, but it would require better matching photo to feel correct even to genus. (no rsvp, thanks)
