Green moth - Synchlora aerata

Green moth - Synchlora aerata
Wichita, Sedgwick County, Kansas, USA
September 13, 2006
Is this an Emerald moth? Thank you for your help.

Moved from Eastern Wavy-lined Emerald.

Moved from subspecies.

This is the nominate
subspecies of Synchlora aerata, i.e., Synchlora aerata aerata found in eastern Kansas and elsewhere.

Looks like it
Yes (I think Nemoria) - browse the guide pages Here

I didn't find what seemed to be an exact match on the Nemoria pages. I did stumble across one that looked a lot like it. Could this be a Wavy-lined Emerald Moth - Synchlora aerata? Thanks for your help.
