Moth on Lantana - Autographa californica

Moth on Lantana - Autographa californica
San Pedro River Valley, SE of San Manuel, Pinal County, Arizona, USA

Found on Lantana flowers in daylight. I would guess a Ni Moth, but I'm not sure. Thank you for your help. I do have a poor photo of the hind wings if that would help.

Thank you
I think this matches. I can't believe how many there are which look alike to me - I was thinking it must be a Gray Looper, but this is a much better match. Thanks again.

genus Autographa
maybe something like Autographa californica - Alfalfa Looper Moth - Hodges #8914
