I wonder whether this little guy might be in the Haploa genus. Any thoughts would be appreciated. Thanks!

Moved from ID Request.

Try Acronicta oblinita
and see what you think.

Acronicta oblinita
A million thanks! I had dismissed that species because the images in my guide book show examples with red warts, which I don't see in my image, but after looking at examples on the bugguide page, it couldn't be anything else. Thanks!
