Unknown Moth - Pangrapta decoralis

Unknown Moth - Pangrapta decoralis
Henrico County, Virginia, USA
August 20, 2007
Size: 10 mm
This is probably a very common moth since I have photographed it in 2005, 2006 and 2007. But after having looked at all of the moth photos here and on other websites and photos in books, I haven't found anything close and I am giving up. I may have just missed it while looking and I hope someone can tell me its name.

Thank you!
Bob, thank you very much for the I.D.! I've moved it. - Carol
