Moved from Blackberry Looper.

Pectinate antennae = ♂
Note, the PM line on the hind-wing as jagged, rather than straight.

maybe blackberry looper
this might be a light form of blackberry looper, which is more typically greenish/blue. I think yours is male.

Mine is a little bit greenish. ^^

some emeralds aren't green
if you take a look through the genus and tribe levels, you'll see that a few have seasonal color changes, such as a brownish form in the Spring.
