Bob Belmont Suggests (tentatively) 6435 - Neoalcis californiaria
... Since overall wing markings are stronger generally on 6435 (Neoalcis californiaria) like on this specimen we should tentatively place it here = 6435. It's either 6433 (Hesperumia latipennis) or 6435. Both species are found at Sagehen Creek
