Submitted by: one72guy
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Caught as it sat near an outside light. iNaturalist AI suggests like A. baueri & A. placida that have similar fore wing spots and doubled am and pm lines, but the black area where the st line meets the costa on the fore wing suggests A. cupida to me, based on photos found here: http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=11043 https://search.museums.ualberta.ca/g/2-6318 https://bugguide.net/node/view/146915/bgimage
