Carl, I think this might be more like this one you have had before . If you agree, please move it.

 
Thanks, A. Hendrickson!
Thank you for correcting the ID. I will move this right away.

OOPS!, I have now given up on trying to separate these two and could not remember where yours was. Looking at the setae on the two it looks like your first one had shorter setae, but both descriptions seem to say the setae are short. Sorry, to change my mind, maybe Geometrid is where it belongs without a picture of the for-tibia.

 
Thanks, A. Hendrickson!
Been there. Done that. Many, many times. ;-) I'll move it back to the family level then. ;-)

Thanks for understanding. I hope to find out more about these. I found conflicting information.
