Cisseps fulvicollis would have a blue abdomen, and sometimes has a yellowish costa.

Do you happen to have any other views of this moth? This is most likely a Yellow-collared Scape Moth or a Grapeleaf Skeletonizer but I can't see enough of the body and wings to feel confident to give you which one.
