Moved from Euchlaena.

Another Lambdina fiscellaria?
Paul, can you also rescue my moth from remaining buried among Euchlaena? It, I'm sure, and I would be very grateful.

Yours is Besma quercivoraria

Moved from Geometrid Moths.

Moved from Moths.

Your moth looks to me like the female to my male that has been languishing in Moths for a while. I am counting on yours now!

Very interesting, indeed! The closest thing I could find in my field guide is Lambdina fiscellaria, but its banding seems to be reversed:

Hopefully someone can ID both of our moths!

The shading of the lines!
Yes,looking for moths with the shading of the lines away from the light median area had led me to Euchlaena as a likely genus. Somewhat close, but certainly not close enough, among them would be #6739 Euchlaena irraria. But this may be barking up the wrong tree.
P.S. I suggest moving your moth out of Geometridae to the Euchlaena genus page.
