Large Lace-Bordered Moth? - Scopula lautaria

Large Lace-Bordered Moth? - Scopula lautaria
Montrose, Laurens County, Georgia, USA
October 25, 2015
This is the one and only time I remember seeing this...

Moved from ID Request.

ID of this Moth…
The Large Lace-border moths (Scopula limboundata), are quite variable but Nancys correct.
:- )

I am tempted to say this moth
I am tempted to say this moth is a Scopula lautaria - Small Frosted Wave Moth


My reasoning being all the Lace-Bordered I look at basically do not have much other than discal spots above the PM line. Your moth shows some heavier blotches such as the one at the inner margin of the AM. And your moth has the rounded, as opposed to pointed, outer margin of the HW of S. lautaria.
