ID'd On MPG?
I noticed that MPG shows this image as 5145 -- Mopsalis Diacme Moth -- Diacme mopsalis.

With Some Reservation This Looks Like.....
.... 5142 - Paler Diacme Moth - Diacme elealis. There is a slight difference (perhaps just normal variation) between my own photo and also Jim Vargo's specimen) that leaves room for doubt. 5145 - Diacme mopsalis is another possibility.

 
Thanks!
