Moved
Moved from Syngrapha celsa.

Way out of range for celsa according to the Plusiinae fascicle (it's a west coast species), and the shape of the silver spot on the forewings looks right for the similar angulidens, which is common in Colorado.

Syngrapha celsa - Hodges #8944
Moved from Moths.

Close call, either way ...
