Geometrid Moth

Pterotaea lamiaria

Description:

Beautiful male moth with white, tan, gray and black stripes. BugGuide note "Pectinate antennae = ♂ Note, the black and white thorax/abdominal banding, rules out several other choices in this tribe, for California. This species is very similar to the Oblique Looper Moth, Iridopsis obliquaria." - Bob Biagi

Porch light in oak woodland near grassland.

First for this genus on Project Noah!
