Genus Nemoria.  Species? - Nemoria elfa

Genus Nemoria. Species? - Nemoria elfa
Liberty County, Texas, USA
March 9, 2021
Nemoria bifilata,N. bistriaria, N. elfa, N. lixaria are all seen in this area but I just can't make a definite match. Any help or comments appreciated.

Moved from ID Request.

Note, there are no spots on the abdomen and no terminal lines on the wings, which rules out most of your other choices. (in your location)
When filming in this genus, if you get a clear shot of the antennae up close, you can determine the gender.

ID - Nemoria elfa
Thanks so much! I was moving this direction but not confident enough to pull the trigger yet.
