Anicla forbesi - Anicla illapsa

Anicla forbesi - Anicla illapsa
Epping, Rockingham County, New Hampshire, USA
August 12, 2013
Size: 2 cm long
I didn't think the collar on this moth was thick enough to be Anicla forbesi, but I ruled out snowy dart (Anicla illapsa) because I have another blurry image of this moth showing a tiny bit of gray colored hindwing. And I ruled out slippery dart (Anicla lubricans) based on range.

This moth was attracted to black light.

moved to A. illapsa
You mentioned collar not thick enough for forbesi and in A. illapsa the hindwing white has some gray at apex in male,and more gray along outer margin in female; thoracic collar thin, black.

Moved from Forbes's Dart.
