Pretty Moth - underwing species?  Found in NC around May on my Lantana. - Apantesis virgo

Pretty Moth - underwing species? Found in NC around May on my Lantana. - Apantesis virgo
North Carolina, USA
Size: 1.5 " or so
This moth looks totally different close winged vs. open winged. Stiking stained glass like markings on it - any ideas?

Tiger moth
A very pretty one...Genus Grammia, probably Grammia virgo based on the hindwing pattern
See here

Not an expert but...
Please see Grammia. Many of the species in this genus look alike so I can tell you which species. Please wait for somebody with more knowledge on these guys to come along...

 
I agree.
Really fine image of a nice specimen. Thanks for sharing!
