LPWmoth - Feralia major

LPWmoth - Feralia major
about five miles east of Gulf Breeze, Florida, Santa Rosa County, Florida, USA
January 8, 2013
Size: Length about 1.8 cm.
Came to my light.
I think Feralia major is a possible ID, but they are so variable I would appreciate another opinion.

Major Sallow Moth - Hodges #10007
Moved from ID Request.
The steep angle had me pondering a bit, but this is a Major Sallow, strictly a winter sallow in the south. Considering Gulf Breeze is on about the same parallel as Mobile, I'm surprised this is the first for Florida on BG.

Major Salllow Moth
Thanks for the ID, I noticed the angle as I was looking at MPG photos and wanted another photo, but had already released the moth. Pete
