Hmmm... I'm thinking this specimen may be an example of the Tissue Moth (7285), but I'm a bit troubled by the Barberry-like (7290) discal spot on forewing. Hoping for confirmation or correction of the identity. Thanks for looking! This specimen was collected and is archived in the NDSIRC at NDSU, Fargo, North Dakota (contact Dr. Gerald Fauske).

take a look at this
one..has it too..
yours is sure a pretty colored one, it would make a pretty shirt or quilt.

 
Thanks, Eddie!
A good comparison, I think. I understand that this species exhibits a remarkable variation in color, and that the orange patch in the central median area (which shows up nicely in this reference photo but seems to be less obvious in my specimen) is sometimes lacking. If this is a tissue moth, it would be a new local species for me. I hope that it is! ;-)
