Coordinator notes: I am calling this Lacinipolia vicina, based on long claviform spot across median area, reddish scaling limited to around the claviform spot, flight time, and overall appearence. I would like a hindwing view to be more certain, but the fact that you have also submitted a L. vicina (with hindwing view) from the same spot and the same night, makes me feel confident in going ahead on this id.
