Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA

Size: wingspan ~20mm
Near outdoor light. In my opinion this is a Scopula compensata like this one that prompted some discussion a year ago. Again, everything except the absence of "smudge" at the PM line speaks for this ID, including the small size (20mm wingspan with a possible error of no more than 1mm). For now I post this one on the genus page hoping for some comment.
