Geometridae: Chlorochlamys trangularis? - Chlorochlamys chloroleucaria

Geometridae: Chlorochlamys trangularis? - Chlorochlamys chloroleucaria
Turtle River State Park, Grand Forks County, North Dakota, USA
June 6, 2011
Size: Wingspread ~ 1.5 cm
Revised identity (11 July 2011): I now think this specimen may be an example of Chlorochlamys triangularis (Hodges #7272W). It may resemble this BG image:




Another new geometrid moth for me! I think this specimen resembles Chlorochlamys more than either Nemoria or Synchlora, but I could wrong. Could it be the Blackberry Looper Moth? I'm hoping for confirmation or correction of identity. Thanks! ;-)

Hmmm
Can't be for certain. Your PMs just seem smoother to me, particularly on HW.



Hopefully, someone else will be more help.

 
Excellent point!
Yes, you are right. Perhaps it's one of three other genera I see in the MPG. The bold and smooth white lines on FW and HW seem to resemble Nemoria caerulescens (371950 or 7042W), Dichordophora phoenix (see 372750 or 7057W), and Synchlora bistriara (373200 or 7065W). I'll keep looking for a good match! ;-)

This image may be a better match:
