I apologize for joining this conversation this late. That said, I do have something to offer.
I recently produced a book, Rare, Declining, and Poorly Know Butterflies and Moths (Lepidoptera) of Forests and Woodlands in the Eastern United States, for US Forest Service. The lead authority/author, Dale Shweitzer (Port Norris, NJ) is the guy you ought to be asking to identify this critter. Coauthors are Marc C. Minno and David Wagner.
Dale’s contact email address” [log in to unmask].
Hope he can help.
