Hemlock Angle
Macaria fissinotata

Observation date: July 05, 2019
Submitted by: dawittrock2231
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Near a floodlight on my deck. I had originally IDed this as notata, but after looking at it again I'm doubtful, I think it is too dark. It is probably aemulataria, but I'm not completely sold on that either. The prominent white line running UNDER the ST midpoint mark has me confused.
Status: Resident
Verified by: Ilona L.
Verified date: January 17, 2021
Coordinator notes: Looks similar to 800764 on BG which has been sitting in moth limbo for a few years. Macaria fissinotata seems to fit but I'm going to wait for an ID from BG.
