Datana robusta

Datana robusta
Hobe Sound, Martin County, Florida, USA
October 13, 2015
Size: 25 mm
I believe this is 7909- Datana robusta. I rule out D. perspicua, which is not reported from my area (South FL). No other Datana species fit. The grey shading extending from the inner and outer margins is characteristic of individuals (7 seen) in my area, is shown on several BOLD specimens, and is present on the only MPG natural image.

Since Datana spp are difficult to ID from photos, I would appreciate confirmation.
