Johnathon, I think your Genus is correct, but as you know, species ID can be difficult in this subtribe. To me, your moth looks more like , but that pattern on the hind wing OR the wing is not as consistent in P.phalerata as it is in A. vittata. I'm not good enough to make a species call.

 
.
Actually i think you're right on the id but i'm too afraid to move any of these to species level.

I think it looks more like vittata but that one looks pretty close too. I'll move to genus for now.
