Maybe a worn Smoked Sallow - Hodges#9550 - (Enargia infumata)? Kinda out of range but it's the closest match I could find. http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...

I honestly think that's not a Fox moth.

thanks for the help, there are lots of moths in different families that look allot like this, so its gonna be hard to narrow it down.

Well I actually think its a fox moth... I thought it was the tiger but it doesn't have any black marks on it. :D I could be wrong too.
