Underwing - Catocala irene

Catocala? aholibah?

This moth obliging hooked onto my window so the next photo shows color on the wing. But, no harm was done and I released it.

Not aholibah
This is VERY similar to C. aholibah, but I don't think it is aholibah. The upperside is okay, but the stripes on the under forewing are solid white. On aholibah, they would be suffused with orange. My best guess is Catocala irene, a very convincing look-alike of aholibah.

 
Interesting, thanks! For some
Interesting, thanks! For some reason I can't find C.irene here at bugguide but did find this other site.
