The closest I am coming to wh
The closest I am coming to what should be a very identifiable moth is the Yellow-spotted Graylet - Hodges#9039 (Hyperstrotia flaviguttata)


Not as clear an image as yours but the yellowish splotch, dots in the finely etched reniform spot and other features seem close. Dark to light seems to vary a lot with the photo as seen on MPG http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=9039&state=TX

What do you think?

 
Thanks Nancy
You are correct with Hodges#9039 (Hyperstrotia flaviguttata). I should have found that one.
