Hi Lisa,

When I was looking for the Decodes that you posted, I came across this moth. I think I had one in Fayette County. I think yours might be pretty worn. I had a full spreadwing pose to work with. It had a very thick body with rings on it, and wings with "hairy" edges, but it had a definite terminal line. I did not ask for an ID confirmation but I gave it the ID of Hodges #7120 - Idaea violacearia. You might check that out.

I couldn't find this one because I had tagged it.

Please look at my other comment and my recent post.
