I thought this might be a Heteranassa mima moth, but the terminal lines are different. Any ideas? Thank you as always.

Thank you
Yes, I believe this is correct. I'd forgotten about the "remember the red hind-wings" note that I made to myself when I took the photo. I appreciate your help.

Copanarta aurea - Hodges#10169 (Copanarta aurea). I'm not an expert but I have had a lot of these. I think I see a tiny bit of the very bright hind wing peaking out.
