Moth on Banana - Amphion floridensis

Moth on Banana - Amphion floridensis
Weatherford, Parker County, Texas, USA

I hung a banana from the Pecan tree over the front deck, hoping to attract some butterflies. I got some wasps and this moth. I would appreciate ID help. I apologize for the poor quality of the photo. Maybe the two white stripes on the back part of the moth will help.

Looks like Amphion floridensis Hodges#7873
