Moved from Moths. Thanks, Paul.

It is certainly a Psara. If this were in the East, I wouldn't hesitate to call it Psara obscuralis, but there is an AZ and TX specialty species called Psara dryalis that looks very similar. I'm not sure how one is supposed to separate the two species. But it's definitely one or the other of them. :)

John, it surely looks like it to me, but my opinion is worth nothing. I have submitted 2 recently that I thought were the same species and neither was accepted.

Moved from Obscure Psara.
