Host plant
"a species of Snowberry (Symphoriocarpos), possibly Common Snowberry (S. albus). Honeysuckle family (Caprifoliaceae). Note opposite leaves". Comment by John Pearson.

It has a kinda Catocala look to it
but we're hopeless on those. The Caterpillar Hostplant database lists both andromedae and gracilis as feeding on Ericaceae, if that is any help. Can't wait for Wagner's new book on the Noctuidae caterpillars to come out!

I agree it does look like a Catocala.
