# 6805 Tacparia zalissaria - Tacparia zalissaria
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
January 28, 2013
Size: ~15mm forewing
Near outdoor light. With this one I have to go out on a limb: #6805 Tacparia zalissaria was the closest fit I found for this type moth without distinct pm line. But I may have missed the perfect fit.

Reason for move
The similarity with this specimen and the encouragement received here has now persuaded me to move the image to the Tacparia zalissaria page. I believe that a future reviewer will not object. The only somewhat similar moth I discovered among the posted images is the Angled Metarrhanthis, Hodges # 6823, but a close inspection of the wing patterns would rule it out
