(no rsvp, thanks)

Your moth looks fairly similar to one of Lynette's images in the guide which has yet to be identified to species (see below), so there is a possibility that yours is also in the genus Synanthedon. Just guessing on my part though... best to wait for some confirmation from one of the fine moth experts we have on this site!

Also, I linked the two separate images that you had submitted of this moth. It's always best to link images of the same insect so that people looking at one image will know to also look at comments that may have already been posted on the other image. Instructions on how to link images at the time you are submitting them can be found on this Help page (see Question #6).

I'm new at this, and didn't even know the images could be linked!
Again, thank you.
