Size: about 1" wingspan
found in a washroom at the "Hole in Wall" group campground at Echo.

Moved from ID Request.

Hi Fran - Yes, this looks to be a Geometrid moth. Appears likely to be Euchlaena. I don't know your area but I see a pretty good match for Euchlaena irraria at this site: and the map suggests it gets up your way...

Thank you, John; I agree on the match, looking at all the details, and your link is a help. Excellent! I cleaned up the image to a more correct colouration and crop.
