Moved from Owlet Moths.

Now I am thinking Catabenoides terminellus, Hodges 10037.

That's another one that seems to come close. (for the males presumably, without the long-dark streak on the wings) However, I'm not really sure that yours is an exact match for that species.
The bi-colored dashes in the ST area might be a unique or key feature that indicates a clear difference, but I don't know this for certain. I cannot say that it is, without a clear idea of where else that this may lead. It could simply be a normal variation of that species.

Moved from Butterflies and Moths.

It looks like something that belongs in the huge genus Sympistis, but I'm not sure. The Hooded Owlets in the genus Cucullia are also very similar, but they don't usually have black-banded faces.
