Aromas, San Benito County, California, USA

Size: 32mm wingspan
Came to black light/MV trap. (live oak/chaparral habitat). Maybe Neoterpes edwardsata?

Moved from Neoterpes. 100% DNA match at BOLD to Sicya macularia.

Moved from Moths. Not knowing anything about this group, I'm moving it to genus for now because I see some minor variations. Feel free to move to species if you want, I have no expertise here.

Looks right
I like Neoterpes edwardsata for this one too. I don't see anything else it could be and the location is right (but that's probably not a sound basis for ID).
