I keep thinking it is just Hypsopygia olinalis, but it seems different.

Moved from Hypsopygia.

Moved from Moths.

Agree -
No lines emerging from the costal triangles ....

Yesterday I was shooting a couple more similar to this. They were a uniform color (not too much of a line) and had dark fringe. Someone said "Oh yeah, there is an undescribed species local to the pine barrens, but no one is working on that". That's all I have.

I've heard a similar rumor. You can see what I was told (which was elicited by a photo I posted on Flickr of a similar moth I saw at Franklin Parker Preserve in 2012) here:

I don't know any more than that, and at this point, I'm inclined to leave all of these "Yellow-fringed Dolichomias without the yellow fringe" as sp.

Steve Nanz suggested that this one might be a dark H. thymetusalis.
