I'm thinking this is correct, based on the lack of brown spots. However, the curve of the green patch sometimes seems subjective.

confusion
You are saying that this is Parasa chloris but when I type in a search for Parasa indetermina my images show there. Still trying to clear up the confusion. I have a decent shot of Parasa chloris that I took in July and it seemed a lot smaller than this one. This one is much brighter and shows considerable green compared to P. chloris. I posted the pictures to the Mothing and Moth Watching Facebook site and a couple of responses I've gotten suggest that this is P. indetermina.

 
Size
Unfortunately, most contributors don't bother to include size, which is often important some ID's. Your recent comments would have been helpful in trying to ID. I really wasn't comfortable with the "curve of the green patch." I suspect there are some specimens that are incorrectly ID'd.
