When I first spotted this moth I thought it was just a faded/worn Wavy-lined Heterocampa (H. biundata #7995) but upon further inspection, that is indeed a white patch and not glare or ware. You can see the underwing in the one shot, and it is white all the way through to the other side. This would be a first for me, a life moth. If I am wrong with the ID, please correct me.
