Interesting moth
Has there been any recent news?

I talked to James Adams and he said the following:
"There were several of us who have specimens, and apparently it is somewhere near Cabera (go figure). But that's as far as it has gotten. Bruce Walsh kinda' has dibs on it, but there hasn't been any discussion about the species in several months."

This was actually extremely c
This was actually extremely common this year. I actually saw several females eclose at night. I believe that Cliff Ferris is actively trying to describe it. I collected about 30, which was a fraction of what I saw. There were some other very rare Geos with it like Chiricahua multidentata and Evita hyalinaria as well.

Moved from ID Request.

New Geometrid Species
Soon to be described by Adams, Ferris, Schmidt & Walsh. Bruce Walsh tells me it is known only from the Chiricahua Mountains above 8,000 feet. (no rsvp, thanks)
