Littermoth (Renia fraternalis?) - Renia salusalis - male

Littermoth (Renia fraternalis?) - Renia salusalis - Male
Tallahassee, Leon County, Florida, USA
March 16, 2018
Size: Forewing ≈17mm
At outdoor light. Please help with this one. Shape reminds me of Renia but it is a rather large moth, the palps are different and I have not yet been able to find one with a large black reniform spot.
Edit: From posted images I conclude that some R. fraternalis have black reniforms: wing patterns of my moth would be right for that species but not size and palps: Maybe it's ignorant to ask whether the discrepancies might be attributable to my moth being a female whereas (most of) the posted images are of males that are more readily attracted to light?
