Observation notes: Temp hi 50s F. Moth’s longitudinal length ~35 to 40 mm. Found alive and resting on deck boards shortly after they were cleaned with a hose. House is sited in mixed woods with some trees overhanging the deck.
Overall I believe it fits genus Calocala quite well. Based on the color of the hind wing and the dark-line markings on the fore wings, I think its species is concumbens, though I’m less confident of the species ID. Verification or correction welcomed.

Coordinator notes: Note the deep purple sheen. That is typical of Catocala cara.
