Thank you
Sorry it took so long to respond. That does look like a good match. I reviewed Peridroma saucia and similar species at this website and at the MPG. I also compared it to the moths on plate 56 of "Moths of Western North America". However, I am only moving it to the subtribe agrotina for now to be on the safe side since I am not an expert.
