Can someone ID this moth? I've looked through many images, but can't find this one.

Moved from ID Request.

Something in Macaria?
Your moth is little too worn, so not sure but.. like this?

Thanks Yurika
for getting me on the right track! Walsh (moths of SE Arizona) lists 2 spp of Macaria, one of which is M. aemulataria and it looks just like mine, so I think there's little doubt.
