Genus Choristoneura looks close.

Moved from Choristoneura.

Tentative ID.

Thanks Jason
It's probably the same as this one

Moved from Moths. Thanks Dick, that link should come in handy.

Agree and perhaps Choristoneura rosaceana
I note many of your specimens are in common with the moths I have found here. I have also sent around 2000 specimens for DNA sequencing and have results from many. Not that this always solves the taxonomic problem but it does add to the evidence. I have also built a reference set that I try and keep refreshed with new DNA forms or corrections. It might work for many of the specimens you find. Maybe provide a starting point. Here is the Flickr link.
