Another suggestion, same genus
might be Haploa contigua. Genus Haploa, or close, certainly seems very likely.

 
Haploa contigua
David,

Thanks for your suggestion on the I.D. We think your suggestion may be correct after looking at many photos on the net.

Not an ID...

Carmen,

Thanks for your help. It looks like Haploa is good choice.

Somebody might recognize it right off,
but there is one thing that can always help with the identification, and that is to note what kind of plant it was feeding on. That can really narrow down the field of candidates rapildly. :0)
