What an interesting beauty!
At first glance it looks to be Macrurocampa, but the face is wrong, as is the split in the dorsal stripe posterior. We had an interesting somewhat similar post recently from Arizona!

We'll check around but wish we had a better Notodontid cat reference :(

Hmm, that split makes me think Heterocampa subrotata.
