Noctuidae: Unknown Specimen - Peridroma saucia

Noctuidae: Unknown Specimen - Peridroma saucia
Turtle River State Park, Grand Forks County, North Dakota, USA
June 7, 2012
Size: Length ~ 2.5 cm
I'll have to come back to this specimen, but 'gut gestalt' is that this may be one of the darts. It seems to resemble the image of Smith's Dart (Xestia smithii) on page 546 of Wagner et al (2011), I think. Although not common, I did collect what I think may be an adult Smith's Dart at this location last year (see Thumb photo below).
