Moth identification

Moth identification
Dunn, North Carolina, USA
August 28, 2017
Size: small
Found in morning in an open grassy area. I believe the eyes appear to be green which I would guess is a distinctive feature, or is it something to do with camera glare? Only similar moth which I have managed to identify is a Glaphyria. Would love to know more.

Moved from ID Request.

Pyraustinae Helvibotys
Excellent - thank you. As the moth is still in Dunn, NC I am not expecting to ever be able to know whether it was Helvibotys or Neohelvibotys, but I would never have managed this far without your expertise. So thank you again
