Coordinator notes: Although the general configuration is similar to Macaria argillacearia, I agree with the previous coordinator that this is likely M. brunneata. The location seems far enough north to be consistent with other sightings in the U.P., Wisconsin and New York. Also note that according to MPG, the taxonomy of genus Speranza has been updated and has been returned to genus Macaria (2015). JRains
