Moth - Megalographa biloba

Moth - Megalographa biloba
Doeskin Ranch (Balcones Canyonlands National Wildlife Refuge), Burnet County, Texas, USA
March 29, 2012
I observed this moth(?) on a miniature Ashe juniper while photographing an Eastern shooting star (Dodecatheon meadia) adjacent to it.
I realize the quality of these photos is not the best, but any other approach with a macro lens was impossible because of the terrain configuration. Thank you.

yes, Megalographa biloba - Bilobed Looper - Hodges #8907
Moved from ID Request.

These have been flying in good numbers every month since October 2011 in southern and central Texas.

It looks like a Bilobed Looper.
