Dallas city, Dallas County, Texas, USA

Size: Forewing length 13 mm
I'm pretty sure this is a Leuconycta lepidula, but it seems to be flying a little earlier than expected. Attracted to porch lights.

Moved from ID Request.

Marbled-green Leuconycta
Leuconycta lepidula is distinctive from other Leuconycta. It's not that that early, considering the unusually warm weather.

The reason I thought this was a little early was because I was reading the info page for the species.
