Small Engrailed - Ectropis crepuscularia

Small Engrailed - Ectropis crepuscularia
our land, along Hwy 88 near Praag, Buffalo County, Wisconsin, USA
May 6, 2011
Came to UV lights. I'm pretty sure this is Ectropis crepuscularia and not Protoboarmia porcelaria. I compared to images of both in the guide, and it seems to me that the darkest spot on this moth is along the PM line, in the center of the wing, and there is no dark streak near where the AM line touches the costa. First for Wisconsin.
