Pyrausta laticlavia ?
I believe you may be correct. It seems to be the best match of the
spp. recorded from the local bio field station:

# 5029 Pyrausta volupialis
# 5034 Pyrausta signatalis
# 5037 Pyrausta inornatalis
# 5042 Pyrausta onythesalis
# 5053 Pyrausta pseuderosnealis
# 5061 Pyrausta tatalis
# 5069 Pyrausta tyralis
# 5070 Pyrausta laticlavia
# 5071 Pyrausta acrionalis
