Came to mercury vapor lamp at night. This appears to be a Eupithecia but I can't come up with which species. Any suggestions?

Glen, I usually feel like I can place the Texas Gray because I see them so often, but when I found this one that is seen in your area I thought it might look more like your moth. Unfortunately, I don't feel like I can place it to species. Have you seen more of them since?

How about
Glenoides texanaria?

 
Eupethecia sp?
That looks good to me. That's a genus that I was not familiar with. Heavily worn bugs do make IDing difficult.

Thanks for the help
