Scopula fuscata

Scopula fuscata
In Westwood; elevation 5100ft, Lassen County, California, USA
June 18, 2008
There it was on the lawn; I had my camera and got just this shot - and away it flew!

Moved from Scopula.

Moved from Simple Wave.

Is 7163 - Scopula fuscata a possibility here?
I'm thinking of the line placement/spacing as well as the fine spotting.

Yes - Scopula fuscata
I have reviewed the the photos of both species at MPG and at the species page at E. H. Strickland Museum as well as their written description of Scopula fuscata - and I do agree with you. Thanks!
