White-tipped Black Moth - Melanchroia chephise

White-tipped Black Moth - Melanchroia chephise
near The Woodlands TX (North of Houston), Montgomery County, Texas, USA
August 12, 2016
I figure this must be a White-tipped Black Moth. First time I've seen one.

Moved to White-tipped Black
Moved from ID Request.

Yes
The white-tipped black wings are distinctive. Nice find. I've yet to see one.

 
Thank you Robert and link to better pic
Robert thank you for confirming the ID.
