Apamea auranticolor

Apamea auranticolor

Came to UV light.

Moved from Moths.

I believe this is Apamea auranticolor, # 9339.

Apamea auranticolor
That looks pretty good to me -- thanks! I found a couple of other online resources (see info page). The markings are quite "muddy" -- but that's how it is. The CA Moth database shows specimens from Humboldt & Siskiyou counties, which are further north (and Humboldt is east) -- but the BOLD map shows a wider distribution outside CA, so it's likely anyway that the moth occurs at Sagehen in Nevada county.
