Only got the one shot before it took off. Sorry, but does anyone want to make a guess? I found this cat earlier in the season, which I believe is a Grape Plume Moth caterpillar (Geina periscelidactylus): https://bugguide.net/node/view/1528045 . Could this be the resulting adult? Thanks! (Terrible pic. Just hoping to narrow down to genus at least).

There are practically no MA data points for this species, so I'm going to go ahead and put this here for posterity. I'll keep my eyes out for these now that I'm sure I have them and if I get a better image I'll frass this one. If the editors want to frass this one, that's okay, but I figured a crummy shot is something anyway...

Geina periscelidactylus
Your identification as Grape Plume Moth looks sound to me.
