Hellinsia balanotes

Hellinsia balanotes
Sunset Beach, Cape May County, New Jersey, USA
September 12, 2016
Size: WS 35 to 40 mm
Very large plume moth found near a night light at a beach restaurant. I believe I have seen this species several times in the past three years in September near the beach with no success at ID. I hope my photography has improved and someone can help with an ID. Thank you for your consideration.
