Came to light at night.
Seems to be a Dart Moth from the Noctuini neighborhood, resembling Agrotis, but I can't find any species matching well.

Thanks a lot for the confirmation & elevation, Charlie !

Peridroma saucia
This looks like Peridroma saucia.

 
Thanks a lot, Josiah !
Peridroma saucia looks good !
It appears to be a species with a remarkably variable color patterning, as its list of synonyms might corroborate.
