What can I say
From the few wing markings I can detect I remain convinced that this is a male Spodoptera frugiperda but have to admit that Khyl is more knowledgeable about moths than I am.

El Paso seems out of place
for latifascia. Any way to double check this one?

 
I didn't collect it
but it looks like your main concern is the location and I can be much more precise about this: I photographed it in a small patch of lawn in my house back then.
Coordinates: 31.735447, -106.303655

I agree
I would call it a male Spodoptera frugiperda like this one .

 
Thank you!
Thank you Peter! I appreciate your kind help.
