According to Covell. Where the dark border of the shoulder dips in is an 
alienaria and shoulder is basically straight on the amicaria.

Until this genus is revised, I juts call them all one species. Dave Wagner says 
he knows of no differences in the larvae, and he also suspects that nepiassaria 
is simply another phenotype in a variable species. Does anybody have any 
characters that they can use to separate amicaria from alienaria?

I can't decide which one this is. The lines on most of the species seem a lot 
more angular in places that the lines on this one although that may be due to 
the angles the moths were photographed at.
