Looks like
Yellow-collared Scape Moth - Hodges#8267 (Cisseps fulvicollis)

Sometimes confused with Virginia Ctenucha - Hodges#8262 (Ctenucha virginica), but yours doesn't seem to have the blue on the thorax.

 
Helpful detail
I found your note about the yellow-collared scape moth being sometimes confused with the Virginia Ctenucha to be very useful too.

 
Thanks! That looks spot on.
