Moth (Noctuid) - Autographa pseudogamma

Moth (Noctuid) - Autographa pseudogamma
Sitka County, Alaska, USA
July 12, 2013
Found on wall where it had come to a light overnight.

Moved from Plusiinae.

Found throughout most of Alaska, across Canada to the Maritimes.

Moved from Moths.

Look at Autographa
plus for a species level compare it to A. californica 8914. Alaska a new record? ...

Thanks -
I see there are at least 4 Autographa species known from my region of Alaska, one of which is A. psuedogamma, that's supposed to be pretty similar to A. californica (which hasn't been reported from Southeast Alaska, but has been reported from Anchorage and Fairbanks). I don't know how to interpret what's given as the key difference, however based on the pictures I was able to find, this one seems to fit pretty well for A. pseudogamma. Looking around on the Pacific Northwest Moths site, I see there's also A. buraetica which might be a possibility?
