Moth - Peridea angulosa

Moth - Peridea angulosa
Savannah, Georgia, USA
Size: 2 cm length

Moved from Peridea.

Are the Colors Deepened Unnaturally in This Photo?
Probably 7921 - Chocolate Prominent Moth - Peridea ferruginia, based in part on the exposed hindwings. Can't rule out 1-2 other Prominents. Get another opinion.

Not intentionally
The moth may have been somewhat grayer in appearence.
The incandescent lighting seems to give it more of a brownish tint.
This is if any - only slightly tinted.
Definately not the gray that is in some of the other photos in the Peridea pages.
Moving to Peridea for now.

This is Peridea angulosa. The shape of the AM line, as well as the strong orange borders of the AM/PM lines, and the orange on the thoracic scaling indicate angulosa.
