Geometrid Moth
The wing shape reminds me of this species below, but several of the lines are missing, for some reason. Some other genera in this subfamily are very similar, but they have a curved wing shape, along the costal edge.
Archirhoe neomexicana: The AM and PM lines seem very close anyway. The ST and basal lines are consistent, as well as the terminal dashes. There is some evidence of wear and most of the fringe is missing from the left fore-wing.

 
Thanks - that seems like a go
Thanks - that seems like a good call.
