Not easily. This specimen has a fairly typical pattern for A. tabulana from the eastern US. Argyrotaenia velutinana can look pretty similar, but usually is paler yellow in the terminal area and usually has a prominent dark marking along the inner margin at the base. It is easier when you have a series to compare it to.
