Pinkish Dart - Anicla

Pinkish Dart - Anicla
Santa Rita Mountains / Madera Canyon, Pima County, Arizona, USA
July 26, 2013
Looks like some type of pinkish/reddish Dart, such as Diarsia, but I couldn't find a good match, and haven't seen anything similar posted for BugSwarm 2013. Any IDeas?


Moved from ID Request.

Thanks also
to Evan Rand who took a look at this one. He's seen a moth like this in this area, but wasn't sure either about the ID. Anicia looks likely, so I think I'll move it to that genus.

maybe something like
try looking in genus Anicla - maybe Anicla espoetia - Hodges #10910.1

that black "rope" over the top of the shoulder is seen in that genus, but it differs from the Snowy Dart because the PM line is more jagged and curved

Thanks Marcia!
Anicia looks good.

I couldn't find many images of A. (Euagrotis) espoetia, but was able to find a few. That holds promise as it is a "Dart" found in the desert SW area where this was found.
