White speckled moth - Lychnosea intermicata

White speckled moth - Lychnosea intermicata
Houston, Harris County, Texas, USA
September 5, 2018
I found this pretty little moth last night resting on the hood of a truck. It was about the size of a quarter (wingtip to wingtip) with brown speckles and VERY active! It took all my efforts to get it to stay on the leaf long enough for a photo or two. As of yet it's the only one I have seen like this.
