Tobacco Budworm Moth for August - Chloridea virescens

Tobacco Budworm Moth for August - Chloridea virescens
Lincoln, Lancaster County, Nebraska, USA
August 4, 2017
Found on Zinnia flower in the morning. Slowly rotated through midday (the time it disappeared), following the sun, so that it's head was behind the center of the flower and facing nearly directly at the sun. Interesting behavior. Is this Chloridea virescens (#11071)? Thought it looked like one, but wanted to make absolutely sure.
