moth - Petrophila

moth - Petrophila
Angelo Coast Range Reserve, Mendocino County, California, USA
September 22, 2006
Came to UV light.

Very Suggestive of 4777 -- Parargyractis fulicalis....
... However, I'm not sure that that species can be attributed to California, even though your photo is a good match for a Jim Vargo specimen at MPG. 4775 - Parargyractis jaliscalis is a very close relative and is known from California.
