one of 2 toughies. I believe the orange-antenna one is guttivitta, biundata antennae darker. Not sure if this holds 100%

Thank you, Tony... might I order a Genus to go with those??

Got it... Heterocampa! I just typed 'Moth ? guttivitta MPG', really surprised when I got an answer!!

MPG/BG not overly helpful re antennae of H. biundata so did some further sleuthing in other areas... any antennae of H. biundata show as dark, while images of H. guttivitta show as orangy/yellow.

Another image....taken in not so bright light has led me to choose H. guttivitta for this moth.  New for me.

What a beauty Joanne!!  Congrats on a new one!

Thanks, Nancy!
