Moved from Geometrid Moths.
That does seem pretty good. I can see why I skipped over it when I was flipping through Wagner.

Just realized we counted wrong!
This raised hump is on A4, which means we should have suggested Prochoerodes lineola, Wagner pg 193. Sorry for the runaround

ok, then, how about
Besma quercivoria, Wagner pg 185

 
Maybe...
Or maybe B. endropiaria, mentioned on the same page? "...usually has a more pronounced reddish cast and proportionately smaller warts."

Moved

Reminds us of
Eutrapela clemataria, Wagner pg 191, but that image has the head pulled back. See what you think.

 
Closest match I've seen...
but definitely lacks the "collar" at the front end of the body. I've added a detail of the front end for comparison.
