Tobacco Budworm Moth - Chloridea virescens

Tobacco Budworm Moth - Chloridea virescens

About 3/4", found on Salvia in the early morning. The closest I could find in the guide was this three-lined flower moth - what do you think?

Heliothis virescens
Similar, but I don't see any images with pink on the hindwings.

 
Yes, I think that's it.
I think the pink was exaggerated by my camera - it was not so striking with the naked eye, and I remember being surprised by it when I downloaded the image. Thanks, Troy!
