How about H. astarte
?

 
Heterocampa astarte not in Texas...
Despite what BAMONA shows, H. astarte isn't in Texas per Charles Bordelon (pers. comm. 2010). These are the spp. recorded from Travis Co. with a few others nearby...

7978 Heterocampa astartoides*
7985 Heterocampa subrotata
7990 Heterocampa umbrata
7995 Heterocampa biundata

*H. astartoides is listed as "Common" in the area (1). It almost has to be this sp., as it ain't any of the others...
