Neoalcis californiaria?

Moved from Ennominae.

Moved from Geometrid Moths.

Moved from Moths.

It looks like something in Glena/Stenoporpia to me. Glena nigricaria comes to mind, but I'm also an east coaster, so I'll leave it to someone from out west to have the final say...

Moved from Common Gray.

Moved from Moths.

I agree
Thanks -- I believe you're right.
