New Backyard Moth Species

There were 11 moths of 6 species in the light trap this morning and 2 were new backyard species.  A Gray Spruce Looper Moth (Caripeta divisata) was a completely new species for me while a Sigmoid Prominent Moth (Clostera albosigma) was a new species for my backyard.  The image of the Sigmoid Prominent was taken in the Waterton area as I failed to get a good photograph of this moth this morning.
