First of all, sorry about the background on this one, I even put my finger close to it a couple of times and it wouldn't budge, But I found its "hump" on the upper part of the wings very interesting. Would like to hear what this one is.

Moved from Soybean Looper.

Golden looper
This looks more like a Golden Looper, Argyrogramma verruca. The gold coloration extends all the way to the outer edge of the forewing, where in includens it does not. Also, this specimen has the orange/gold coloration on it's face (see the "eyebrows"), whereas includens should not have this, at least not nearly as prominently.

Moved from Moths.

Pseudoplusia includens. They seem to be quite variable; here's one that looks similar to yours

Excellent Stephen!
Thanks for the quick ID! It looks right to me.
