Size: About 2.5 cm long.
This beautiful moth was attracted to my backdoor light one night. Can someone tell me if this is an oval-based prominent moth (Peridea basitriens)? I compared my pic with this one on BugGuide: http://bugguide.net/node/view/11693/bgpage

The lot is wooded deciduous/coniferous with a nearby river. Thanks.
