Emerald Moth? Which one? - Dichorda iridaria

Emerald Moth? Which one? - Dichorda iridaria
Arlington, TN, Shelby County, Tennessee, USA
July 22, 2008
Size: 1 1/2 to 2 inches across
I was wondering which Emerald moth is this? Maybe White-fringed? I know it is in the Geometridae and there are lots of moths referred to as Geometrid. I had never seen this one before in my life and it was on the wall inside of our garage. It was so unique.

I cropped this
first TN image.

Showy Emerald
It looks like Dichorda iridaria.
