This moth was seen at the porch light, at around 10:20 pm. These moths are fairly common around here, with their host plant (Calliandra eriophylla) being locally native here. This moth has grey forewings, with black and white hindwings. The wingspan is 35–42 mm.
In my garden, Fort Worth, Texas.
It is found in Mexico (Yucatán, Mérida), Colombia and most of the United States and western Canada.
