smoky arches moth ~ 05/08/09 ~ Pinnacles

smoky arches moth
Drasteria fumosa

It sure is pretty! Noctuidae? It makes for an awesome Rorschach test. I see a horse's head like Chauvet Cave drawings in the dark part.

ps 10/14/10 -In the neighborhood of Hodges 8640?

pss 04/06/11 - This was one of first 5 posts on Nature ID. I originally posted it as an unknown moth. Thanks to the help of Chris Grinter of the Skeptical Moth, I now have corrected the ID above with embedded links.
