Coordinator notes: I think this moth is a better match for F. tricosa. Could also be Feltia subgothica -- Separating these two species is tricky. The easiest way to separate them is by examination of the male antennal setae. This cannot be done with females. There is a noticeable difference is forewing coloration between the two species, but a large series of specimens is necessary to spot this. -Kyhl Austin
