Moved to Lacinipolia vicina
Moved from Lacinipolia teligera.

This group has been revised by Schmidt 2015 (1). Given the date and location, Lacinipolia vicina is more likely. Within the L. vicina species complex, only L. vicina and L. sareta are found east of the Mississippi and the latter is more northerly with flight late June to early August.

Lacinipolia teligera
Curt, I checked it out on moth photographers group (I couldn't find the species name on here), and it looks like it. I'm not sure what else it could be, although some others do look pretty close.
