Crambidae, Pyraustinae, Spilomelini, Desmia sp., it is either Desmia funeralis or Desmia maculalis. Unfortunately it is not possible to ID this one from a picture. You need the native specimen for DNA. Both are reported from Kentucky. I would go either with Desmia sp. or Desmia funeralis/maculalis as scientific name with mentioning the tricky ID details in the description section.
