Genus Herpetogramma. There are three that look very much alike that can be seen in N.C. We just saw them at the BG gathering and are trying to get a better way to separate the species. Because the background of your moth is almost white and your markings on the Costa are also light this may be H. abdominalis.

When I have more definitive information I hope to remember to get back to you, but you can track some of the conversation if you type "gathering_2015" in the search field and click on the associated images.
