Moved from Lacinipolia.
Looks close to this other one I previously posted.

Moved from Moths.
The moth looked like it had more green on it than the picture shows. It looks like this genus, but I'm not confident about placing it to species. Dick, thanks for guiding me in the right direction.

Compare with some of the Lacinipolia ...
and specifically perhaps Lacinipolia olivacea 10406. Not really that good a fit but this genus has lots of variation ... good luck.
