Size: ~25mm TL
Of the several look alikes (A. lignicolora, Airy Apamea, Confused Woodgrain-Morrisonia etc), A. vulgaris is the one that looks most like this moth to me. Not a lot of images on BG to compare to. MPG has sightings in my area but also lacks many images. Opinions?

Moved- Not Noctuidae, Sphingidae
Moved from ID Request.

This is Lapara bombycoides.
