Hodges #9037 - Dotted Graylet Moth - Hyperstrotia pervertens

Hodges #9037 - Dotted Graylet Moth - Hyperstrotia pervertens
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
June 20, 2014
Size: ~8mm length
At outdoor light. I've been holding back on this one because the moth is somewhat worn, but I am certain it is a Hyperstrotia and, by my judgment, the markings, especially the shape of the AM lines, make it a H. pervertens. Is this correct? (The species is listed in Heppner's Florida checklist but no image from the state has been posted yet in BugGuide.)

Hyperstrotia pervertens
Yes, it is a badly worn Hyperstrotia, but all MPG depicted species except H. pervertens have AM lines that turn inward near the inner margin, forming an inverted V when the wings are closed. Whatever is visible of the other wing markings is consistent with pervertens as well.
