Thanks Chuck!

Moved from ID Request.

I'm not sure how to rule out a few of the similar species, such as...
Sympistis chorda: ...and also Sympistis buto. Someone else may be able to tell you.

Sympistis buto
Hi Bob
This didn't take very long! :-).
Chuck Harp from the FB Mothing & Moth-watching group suggests Sympistis buto "Closest to Sympistis buto- Troubridge 2008".

Once again thanks! I posted on iNat & will do on a FB Moth group I’m on. There may be a Sympistis specialist lurking within both those sites. I’ll report back should I hear anything!
