Daytime moth ID needed - Caenurgia chloropha

Daytime moth ID needed - Caenurgia chloropha

I'm pretty sure that this is a Vetch Looper
Sometimes the base of the hind wing is a little darkened as in this one. The pattern of the front wing fits with the Vetch Looper, but not the Clover Looper.

Moved from Forage Looper.

Moved from Vetch Looper Moth.

I think it is a female of Cae
I think it is a female of Caenurgina erechtea. Note that in this specimen the basal half of the hindwings is darker than the outer half. In Caenurgia chloropha the basal half of the hindwing is concolor with the outer half.
