Likely the Long-streaked Tussock Moth - Leucanopsis longa

Likely the Long-streaked Tussock Moth - Leucanopsis longa
Lutz (Tampa), Hillsborough County, Florida, USA
July 23, 2018
Size: ~1 inch
I believe this is the long-streaked tussock moth (Leucanopsis longa) but pattern is interestingly different to me in that the distal portion of the streak is quite suffused and the wave pattern on the wings seem to be just an unorganized mess of dots. If indeed L. longa, I hereby add a Hillsborough County record for BugGuide.

Was hoping the image wouldn't have to be strongly portrait but apparently the more or less square form was huge.
