Sorry it's a bit out of focus! Saw it at 5:30 PM resting upside down on the south wall of my atrium.

Moved from Salt Marsh Moth.

Welcome to Bugguide!
This is a great find, but he's been mistakenly placed in the Salt Marsh Moth - Hodges#8131 (Estigmene acrea) page, and should be moved to the Urania fulgens - Hodges#7658 (Urania fulgens) page here:

Urania Flugens
Thank you, I don't know how it got there - I'm new at this!
