Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. Not great photos, small moth in a difficult to access spot. I thought Biden's was the best match. Has the large U-shaped white area. Dark speckling is less than on most pictures, so that makes me wonder a bit. But there is a lot of variability.
