Observation notes: Image captured in Aurora, CO, 80014, Arapahoe County in early Sunday morning of 16July2017. The weather is dry, clear with slight breeze from the SE. The window screen 'squares' is 1/32". The moth is about 1" (25cm) from wingtip to wingtip. The color (gray, white, black) is 'true-to-life'. I have gone through internet guides to moths and none of the images match the 'wing-banding' of this species. Full identity, if possible, please.
