Moth - Iridopsis defectaria

Moth - Iridopsis defectaria
Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA
April 2, 2017
A moth on the underside of a Maple leaf. I know there are many species that look similar so it might be tough to identify. Wingspan was about 2 inches from tip to tip.

Moved from ID Request.

I suggest
Iridopsis defectaria - Brown-shaded Gray Moth - Hodges#6586

Thank you Marcia, I see you're well-versed in moths! Your ID does look very similar, and you may very well be right. :)
