I am pretty sure this is A. stigma due to the deeper orange coloration and wing shape.

I originally thought A. stigm
I originally thought A. stigma, too. When I submitted to BAMONA it was verified as A. senatoria. I'm fairly new at this, so I will defer to others.

A. stigma
Ok, well unfortunately many (maybe a majority in some cases) of Anisota are mis-identified at BAMONA, and the interface of that website does not really allow for corrections to be easily made. I agree with your original ID of A. stigma and will move your sighting to the relevant page.
