This looks closer to retecta/luctuosa to me

 
Thanks
After looking at various images of both, I agree Jonn. They do look so much alike. I also see that over 10 yrs ago someone from our county posted the only other retecta/luctuosa from our county and is the only one of that moth posted in BG for Iowa.

Will figure out how to change it.
Thanks
Moni
