Mocis
Mocis for sure and likely Small Mocis, Hodges 8743 (Mocis latipes)

 
thanks
"Small Mocis", I thought is a large moth. Thanks for the Info, I appreciate it.

 
"Small" is relative
Actually, it's only slightly smaller than the other Mocis. The common name that trips me up, is the Small Engrailed. It's one of the larger grays.
