White-blotched Heterocampa - Heterocampa umbrata

White-blotched Heterocampa - Heterocampa umbrata
Snowhill Road north of Cabin Branch Creek, Durham County, North Carolina, USA
August 1, 2006
Size: 52 mm wingspan

Thanks for help--I was in the wrong family (Noctuidae).

7990 -- White-blotched Heterocampa -- Heterocampa umbrata
... and a pretty good match for Lynette Schimming's photo from southern North Carolina.
