White moth with scattered small spots - Noctuoidea - Protogygia pallida White moth with scattered small spots - Noctuoidea - Protogygia pallida

Moved to Protogygia pallida
Moved from Owlet Moths.

Tentative ID confirmed, "... It’s the most likely whitish Copablepharon/Protogygia in New Mexico. The most likely pale Copablepharon to range into that area would be C. spiritum lutescens, but it would show more pale yellow, especially on the thorax. It’s too far east for P. album, and not white enough." - Don Lafontaine (pers. comm. 10/22/2019).

Image added to MPG, thanks!

Moved from Flower Moths.

I think this might be Protogygia pallida Fauske & Lafontaine, 2004. I'll see if I can get confirmation. If not that species, I could be something in Copablepharon, maybe albisericea. Since I'm not sure it can't be Schinia, I'm moving it to family.
