Dear Jeffrey,
You have a species of Arctiidae (Tiger Moths) known as the Edwards’ Glassy-wing, Hemihyalea edwardsi. It is a California species. Sorry I can’t give you any additional information since I can’t locate anything online other than photos and there isn’t much written in the books I have.

Thank you for identifing my moth. That helped allot.

Thank you Jeffrey, for sending the great photo of you pinning your collection.
