At light. A. atristrigaria?

Moved from ID Request.

Anavitrinella atristrigaria - Hodges #6591

yes geometrid
try looking at iridopsis
Iridopsis ยป Brown-shaded Gray Moth - Hodges#6586 (Iridopsis defectaria)

it is a geometridae in subfam
it is a geometridae in subfamily ennominae after that not sure check the Stenoporpia ----

Not sure about that
None of the many pics of Iridopsis show those strong black bars - I can find nothing as close as the bugguide photo #405739 of A. atristrigaria.

... the fly I mean (joke).

I'm staring to really like these Geometrids. How varied and beautiful!

Sorry I'm no help with the lep ID yet...
