Anaplectoides pressus

Anaplectoides pressus
Stevenson, Skamania County, Washington, USA
July 21, 2006
Attracted to lights. Green shading on dorsal front wing.

Moved from Moths.

Anaplectoides pressus
I think that is a specimen of Anaplectoides pressus (Noctuidae: Noctuinae) - Hodges' # 11001. This specimen doesn't have contrasting white patch distal the reniform spot that is characteristic for A. prasina. It also has less green color than A. prasina. For identification see the reference:

Lafontaine, J. D. 1998. Noctuoidea, Noctuidae (part) in Dominick, R. B. et al. TheMoths of America North of Mexico, fascicle 27.3
