8096 - Eudesmia arida
Identified by Ed Knudson at Texas Lepidoptera Survey, to whom I sent the photograph. (no rsvp, thanks)

Looks like
Eudesmia arida (Arid Eudesmia - Hodges#8096)
http://bugguide.net/node/view/128769/bgimage

But I don't know anything about 8097 – Eudesmia menea – (Drury, 1782), which is close (but seems different enough to me)
