Geometer sp? - Homochlodes

Geometer sp? - Homochlodes

A tough one!
I'm suggesting a Homochlodes. 3 hard to ID species, I have seen 2 and yours looks like neither. Therefor, by default, I believe it's Homochlodes disconventa.

Homochlodes sp.
Another one that I don't know what to do with, besides put in by genus. The pictures I found on the web are confusing. MPG shows Homochlodes fritillaria with 3 pictures, one of which is different than the other 2, but looks identical to this one.

I'm not convinced
that the 3rd specimen on MPG (Silsbee image) is in fact fritillaria; confusion is OK!
