Seems like a wide enough dorsal stripe
and enough black around the spiracles for it to be Cucullia asteroides. Guessing you found it on a Goldenrod stem??

 
looks like a good match...
found it while sweep netting so can't be sure what plant it came off, but I was in a field full of goldenrod and asters.
