Those vein patterns should make it easier, but I'm still stumped.

Moved from Owlet Moths. I agree with H. zea.

Stuart, a couple of nights ago I had my first one that looked like this with the veins and one dot. Can we assume it has been identified and frass for wear. Unfortunately I did not keep mine as I thought this had already been frassed.

Moved from Noctuoidea.

Moved from Moths.

worn Helicoverpa zea?
I think this might possibly be a worn Helicoverpa zea, compare to and (this one has stronger markings, but same shape, and the reiniform spot looks the same). See also the greenish eye on your moth, visible in the second photograph, Helicoverpa zea has green eyes like this one Also, check out some of the photos on BOLD. They have some lightly marked specimens (such as the last photo in the series) like this one looks to be.
What do you think?

Much Better!
Not sure this can be identified with any certainty but your guess is way better than mine.

8129 – Pyrrharctia isabella?
Wing shape and reniform aren't quite right so probably a bad guess.

I can't make it into Pyrrharctia as you suggested, but I did add a lateral view. I'm still stumped. Thanks
