I'm thinking these are different individuals. If so, go ahead and un-link them, if you don't mind.

I see moths like this a lot. My guess is that they're H. phaeopteralis, and I posted one once, but didn't get confirmation either way.

 
Thank you
very much for this information. I went back and checked the numbers on my photographs and I think they are the same individual. I really try to be careful about that. However, I took voluminous numbers of pictures of numerous individuals trying to get a clear picture of the lines. I looked at other posts of #5274 and I thought Robert Zimilich's photos #341453 and#708301 looked a lot like what I saw in the totality of what I photographed. The PM line was continuous on the "younger" specimen. I didn't see this one last year, but I have had nothing but those here in Houston this year!

Shoule I unlink them just in case?

 
I think it's ok to
I think it's ok to leave them linked.

Herpetogramma phaeopteralis?
I'd sooner think Herpetogramma phaeopteralis, but Rhectocraspeda periusalis isn't a species I'm familiar with...

I am sure you are right. I thought mine had more of a completed curve to the PM line, but at least this one has been seen in Houston. I get blurry eyed trying to read the lines on these. Thank you for the help. Is this an ID?
