Looks like Papaipema arctivorens, but the color seems to be a bit red ... any ideas?

found at the vapor light

Moved from Borer Moths.

Moved from ID Request.

second guess
after looking thru more of the borer pictures....I would like to place another stab at this ID: indigo stem borer.
now more curious than ever. had no idea there were so many different borers to choose from!

Borer moth?
appears to be a brick-red borer moth, Papaiema marginidens, but just a swing at its appearance based on pics on Moth Photog's group.
see what you think:

sweet picture!
