Lovely little clearwing moth. Wondering if I have the genus correct, and whether anyone can take it to species.

Moved from Clearwing Moths.

Based upon the white spot adjacent to the eye, the date and location, I would say that it is Synanthedon pictipes. Commonly called the lesser peachtree borer. It feeds mostly on wild cherry.
