It looks like either #8738-Clover Looper or #8739-Forage Looper. Maybe someone can narrow it down for you.

Yes, thank you Dave!
It looks very similar to the image of Caenurgina erechtea in the guide pages. I've moved it to genus.

C. crasiuscula
I would say it is C. crassiuscula

Thank you.
I'm not a moth person. I just shoot them while I'm waiting to see what beetles show up at my UV lights. Therefore, if you are a recognized authority on moths, I would have no knowledge of it. Nor does your personal page provide the slightest indication. So I hope you will take no offense if I wait for other opinions before moving this to species page.

You are welcome
It is up to you. I am just saying what I think it is. However, I am specializing on tribes Melipotini and Euclidiini and have some experience in identifying members of these groups.

Very well
I think I will move it to species page. If you include information about your background and qualifications on your personal page, accessed by clicking your personal link, it could help other bugguide contributors conclude they are getting an informed opinion from you. They might also enjoy finding out other things about you if you can find the time to write a short biography.
