Moved from Bilobed Looper.

We would expect Megalographa to look fuzzier
Any chance this is Autographa precationis?

 
Oh my goodness, they look just alike.
I do this on beetles all the time. I finally think I can ID something on my own, and well, I can't. I'll take a closer look. That might explain why the larva didn't quite match.

OK, let me revise this. They don't look just alike (almost though). The adult is more colorful and matches better. The young larva still doesn't look like any that are posted.

Thank you.
