Moths (two photos)
Family Owlet Moths
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.
