Catocala blandula, Buffalo County, Wisconsin,
July 16, 2014, Marcie O'Connor, tentative id by Bill Oehlke.

Marcie O'Connor and I have determined the specimen above to be Catocala blandula because of strong presence of dark brown scaling in basal area. It could be Catocala mira, but I would expect mira to be lighter and greyer in same area.
