Observation date: July 14, 2021

Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Found in the morning inside my light trap. iNat AI identifies it as genus Lacinobia. From my initial searches I thought it was possibly L. vicina, but Annotated Checklist of the Moths and Butterflies (Lepidoptera) of Canada and Alaska - Pohl - 2018 says that vicina is not in SK. A further search leads me to believe this is actually Lacinipolia acutipennis, which looks to me like a very close match to my specimen.
