Gazoryctra

Gazoryctra
Sitka County, Alaska, USA
July 31, 2013
I have a collection of this moth. I'm still not sure what Gazoryctra species are here where I live, but I'm suspecting there are at least two (I've noticed some tend to be smaller and darker, like this one, while others tend to be larger and brighter). In a recently published checklist of moths for Alaska, G. confusus was the only species currently known from Southeast Alaska (where I live).

maybe
the females are larger have you looked at the bellies to see if they are full of eggs? the males would have claspers..
