Lepidophora lutea? - Lepidophora lutea

Lepidophora lutea? - Lepidophora lutea
Indian Springs wildlife management area, Washington County, Maryland, USA
August 19, 2018
A moth expert at another site suggested this was Lepidophora lepidocera. But checking the guide on this site makes me think that it is Lepidophora lutea. The BugGuide page for the former says "Lepidophora lutea is very similar but its pale scales are mostly yellow, and there are abundant yellow scales on the sides of the fourth abdominal segment.” And that "In L. lepidocera, the pale scales are white or pale yellow, and usually no pale scales are evident on the fourth abdominal segment.”
