Sorry, after checking closer, I think this is the summer female:

Males are much more yellow. :-)

Okay, I'll go with that. I don't see the markings on the upper forewing in my Peterson guide, but the common name is "variable".

Lovely moth! I think this is the summer male form of Antepione thisoaria.
