There were some “similar species” here: http://www.backyardnature.net/n/a/moo/ but not an exact match.

Thanks, Britt.  Although the moth in question very much resembles those in the genus Nola, it's apparently a member of the genus Idia, in the subfamily Hermeniinae, or Litter Moths.  

Below are a few photos from various sources of the American Idia (Idia americalis).  The first is from Cindy Mead, http://www.pbase.com/lilwings/image/4093740.  The coloring is a bit off, but the key is the most distal dark spot close to the edge of the forewing, having a noticeable white line on its distal edge.  This species is quite variable, as see the other photos on this website, as here, http://www.pbase.com/lilwings/image/3168401.

Bug Guide has this photo, where the coloring is closer to the moth on my back window:  http://bugguide.net/node/view/594326.

Thanks to Mark Klingler for the ID, and to Anne Runyon for yet another moth resource on Facebook, which see if any interest:
