Oak Beauty? - Phaeoura quernaria - male

Oak Beauty? - Phaeoura quernaria - Male
our land - along Hwy 88 near Praag, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
June 5, 2011
Came to UV lights. This looked a little different than a Pepper & Salt Geometer (Biston betularia), so this is what I came up with. The two species are very similar! The white spots along the costa are brighter and more definite than in B. betularia, the hind wing seems more scalloped, and the horizontal pattern fits this species better - I think.

Can anyone confirm that this is the right ID?
