Large Lace-border - Scopula limboundata

Large Lace-border - Scopula limboundata
Kokomo, Howard County, Indiana, USA
June 15, 2010
I thought this was a common tan wave moth at first, then realized I was wrong. I now believe it's a Simple Wave.
edit: I thought that it couldn't be limboundata because I couldn't see the discal spots on the forewings. I didn't realize that junctaria lacks discal spots.

Moved from Simple Wave.

7159 – Scopula limboundata?
This looks like it may be the "enucleata" form of S. limboundata. Note the very wavy pm. line.

Thank you so much for encouraging me to look at this one more closely! I always learn so much from your comments (on mine and on other contributor's photos) :)

Your Welcome
Hope I got it right. Thanks for the kind words.

Moved from Common Tan Wave.
