Mostly black wasp-like moth - Harrisina

Size: 20-30 mm wingspan?
On my bedroom wall.

I'm not even sure this is a moth, but if it is, is it something like Ctenuchina?

Sorry about the low quality. I really should get a flash.

Moved from Grapeleaf Skeletonizer.

This is out of range. It may be metallica.

Moved from ID Request. Thanks! I think moving it is safe. The guide does already have an image from N. M., by the way.

There's lots of Virginia Creeper around here, but its caterpillars had better not skelentonize mine!

Possibly Harrisina americana which are usually found further east.
