Moved from Borer Moths.

The amount of white around the reniform spot makes this appear to be P. baptisiae. P. arctivorens doesn't have such well-developed white markings in that area.

 
Thanks, Paul!
Thanks for the ID! And thanks so much for spending the time and making the concerted effort to clean-up the Papaipema moths on BG! I sincerely appreciate it! That's a BIG, BIG project!
