Schinia alencis - Hodges #11198
Moved from Moths.

My first thought was this might be Schinia chryselloides - Hodges # 11199.1 with the dark scales near the apex of the forewing, but this appears to be a very pale Schinia alencis - Hodges #11198.
I will do some reading to make sure.

 
reniform spot is never separate in chryselloides
reniform spot is never separate in S. chryselloides or S. chrysellus so this is Schinia alencis - Hodges #11198.
The wider median band is also a key.
Thanks

 
Thanks Maury,
I appreciate the added work on this ID.
