6239 – Thyatira lorata
recognized it as similar to 6240 – Euthyatira pudens – Dogwood Thyatirid Moth

 
Thanks, Cameraon
I guess Euthyatira pudens is a pseudonym for Thyatira lorata.

...Or not! I admit I am a bit confused on this one! Two different numbers would seem to indicate different species, however, I have seen references that seem to treat the two names as Pseudonyms. I guess I just misinterpreted them.
