My photo details a line through each reniform spot, dark brown patches on the wingtip, dark obicular spots and a humpback appearance. See linking reference for detailed photos.
Found on white sheet illuminated by black light, riverside near the edge of the treeline
According to BugGuide, there are two palthis moth species found in America north of Mexico...Palthis asopialis (Faint-spotted Palthis) and Palthis angulalis (Dark-spotted Palthis). Using Mark Dreiling's reference to distinguish these two, it can be concluded that the moth in this photo would be Palthis asopialis (Faint-spotted Palthis).
