Eulepidotis sp. from urban Austin - Eulepidotis

Eulepidotis sp. from urban Austin - Eulepidotis
Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
September 2, 2023
At UV Lights in urban northeast Austin. Did not realize this was something uncommon until I edited my photos a few hours later. Will collect a specimen if one visits my yard again. Quite a striking moth!

The wing markings don't look quite like Eulepidotis persimilis but there are not a lot of photos of all the species found in North America. Appreciate any input.
