Catocala micronympha (perhaps?) - Catocala innubens
Port Republic, Atlantic County, New Jersey, USA
August 8, 2005
Not a great shot and I don't know moths, but I am submitting because I can't find an image of C. micronympha posted here yet, if that is what this is. Perched near our driveway and frontyard garden 2-3 days. I am fascinated to see all the discussions of Catocala ID here.

8770 - The Betrothed Moth Underwing - Catocala innubens
The light coloration of the basal inner margin (adjacent to the thorax) distinguishes this form of this species from the otherwise similar C. micronympha.

Thank you very much
I appreciate the tip and the information.
