Attracted to CF lights at back of house and landed on a glass door. The only retouching was done to remove the myriad bright specks that that are accentuated when a flash lilluminates outdoor glass…especially in macro mode. The moth was NOT retouched.

Very tough ID as the major lines are light here, and nearly 100% of those on Bugguide and MPG have dark lines. However, all other field marks seem to line up with this species. There was a pinned specimen on MPR (© CBIF) that DID show the lines as in this photo.
