Coordinator notes: PM line is curved in Renia flavipunctalis whereas the PM line is almost straight with a slight upward curve at the sides of the wing. Reniform spot in some B. caradrinalis also are yellow. If the photo is distinct, iNat does a pretty good job of IDing moths unless they're really rare. Renia salusalis has a bell-shaped outline with a darker streak through the middle. R. salusalis is also found south of us.
