I believe this is S. deceptiva because of the pinkish color below. S. fervefactaria, as given in the info here is yellowish below. Either would be a new Tex. record for BG. Photo by C. McNamee for whom I am checking her photos from the Ntl. Park. At light. Hopefully many more moths will be posted later. Elevation here is about 6,300 ft.

Many thanks for the correction on this one.

You're welcome
They're really easy to confuse, and are indeed confused on various web sites. I had to go back to the original descriptions to even figure out for myself which one was really which.

After you posted this, I tried to make the ID notes on BugGuide more understandable (the wording was a bit difficult before).

To be honest, I'm not sure if they are really even different species. They might be just one species with regional populations that look a bit different; but, that's something for someone else to work out.
