 Pannaria Wave Moth  - Leptostales pannaria

Pannaria Wave Moth - Leptostales pannaria
Grand Bay National Estuarine Research Reserve/National Wildlife Refuge, Jackson County, Mississippi, USA
September 2, 2009
Size: ~ 2 cm wing span
Leptostales pannaria #7173 or Leptostales crossii #7174?

Also, what are good characteristics to tell the two apart? I read the info pages (BG and MPG) on both species but still couldn't differentiate them.
