Ecliptopera? - Ecliptopera silaceata
Sitka County, Alaska, USA
April 1, 2012
My daughter found this in the house, no doubt it got trapped here last year some time. It looks a lot like the Ecliptopera species, but I've not been able to find a match on bugguide or other resources I've looked at that seems good.

Ecliptopera silaceata - Small Phoenix - Hodges #7213
Moved from Geometrid Moths.


Thanks -
It's interesting that it looks a bit different than the other one I photographed ( - but perhaps that's witihin normal variation.
