Can someone ID this moth? Thanks

Now Datana cochise
Moved from Walnut Caterpillar Moth.

Tentative ID. Not sure I can eliminate D. perfusa, recently raised from synonymy of D. perspicua Grote & Robinson, 1865 to full species status.

D. cochise Dyar, 1905, described as a variety of D. integerrima Grote & Robinson, 1866, is raised to full species status in MONA Fascicle 22.1A: 149 (1).

Moved from Moths.

Moved from ID Request.

you might want
to look at Datana chiriquensis this seems to have the white around that brown head..

Genus Datana
Have a look at the different species while waiting for an expert

Thanks for
pointing me in the right direction. I think this is most probably D. integerrima since I have found its caterpillar not too far away.
