Catocala moth? - Catocala ulalume

Catocala moth? - Catocala ulalume
Richardson, TX, Collin County, Texas, USA

Is this definitely in the Catocala genus? Can we tell from the photo which species? Each time I approached it, it would fly to another Bald Cypress tree, but it soon gave up flying away and stayed in one spot for me. The wings have spots that look like eyes. Are these the "reniform spots"? Thanks in advance for any help with identification.

Hi Rick
Looks like what you have here is Catocala dejecta, to the best of my knowledge. The main spots that look like eyes are the reniform spots, while the smaller white patches closer to the inner margin are the subreniform spots.

 
Hi Kyle
Thanks for the help.
