Geometridae: Macaria sexmaculata? - Venusia comptaria

Geometridae: Macaria sexmaculata? - Venusia comptaria
Grand Forks, Grand Forks County, North Dakota, USA
April 26, 2012
Size: Wingspread ~ 1.5 cm
Hmmm...I'm probably way wrong, but this petite geometrid seems to resemble a 'nondescript' version of the Six-spotted Angle Moth (6343). It has a Phigalia-like look to it, but is decidedly smaller and more fragile. I'll need help with this one. Thanks for looking! This specimen was collected and is archived in the NDSIRC at NDSU, Fargo, North Dakota (contact Dr. Gerald Fauske). A tissue sample from this specimen, taken for later DNA analysis, is archived at UND, Grand Forks, North Dakota (contact Dr. Rebecca Simmons).
