Green, male moth with a white band across the postdiscal interspace of both the forewing and hindwing. There is also a band across the forewing on the postbasal insterspace. There is one small black spot between the two white bands on each forewing. Another black spot is on each hindwing in the postbasal interspace. The coastal interspace of the firewing is white with brown spots. The face appears white in this image although I was unable to get a view of the face due to its location.
Attracted to the porch light in Oak woodland and Chaparral transitional habitat. This species is found from the "Coastal Oregon south to Baja California with the Sierra Nevada and Transverse Ranges the eastern limit"
