The prominent black discal spot, jagged/zigzagged AM line, PM line nearly straight above tooth, and other features seen on this individual above, are characteristics of Euphyia intermediata and tend to rule-out an ID of Xanthorhoe lacustrata-#7390.

Individual came to lights, located in deciduous forest, at 1600' in North Georgia Mountains, approximately 20 miles due south of Tennessee and North Carolina. Covell and this guide give the range to North Carolina-but this location in Georgia is just 20 miles south, with two mountains nearby (in this same county) with elevations of over 4000'.

This would be a first Georgia data-point, and third southeastern U.S. data-point, if ID correct.

Appears to be Euphyia intermediata - Sharp-angled Carpet - Hodges#7399:

Moved from Larentiinae.

Moved from Moths.

Moved from ID Request.
