Plagiomimicus Moths  (two photos)
Family Owlet Moths

brown moth
I think this is
Plagiomimicus spumosum because the bright white (postmedial) line is quite straight until it bends
sharply forward towards the end. This seems to be consistent with others of the species I have seen on the Internet.

There is quite a difference in the postmedial white line on this moth.  It goes straight down until about halfway, then takes a
 diagonal curve back and then another sharp jut forward. I think this is
Plagiomimicus Manti. Both moths were found
in different years in Taylorsville, Salt Lake County, Utah.  © Carol Davis, 7-26-2008
