Moth - Holochroa dissociarius

Moth - Holochroa dissociarius
Austin, Travis County, Texas, USA
March 29, 2014
Size: ~4cm across
Please help me to identify this moth. It came to my brightly lit porch at about 10PM, March 29, 2014. The porch opens to a dense oak/cedar forest.
Thanks -


Holochroa dissociarius varia
Moved from Holochroa dissociarius.

Our central TX subspecies.
Thank you

Thank you, Maury.
This is the first specimen of Holochroa, which I encountered in Austin since I moved here two years ago and started photographing each night moths coming to our porch. (By the way, in the night of 03.30.14 another Holochroa arrived to us.)

Moved from ID Request.
