Coordinator notes: I agree with your identification. P. edwardsii feeds on Quercus sp. (according to Wikipedia) and is known to be resident in and near your county (see http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=8222). Your photo is also consistent with what I see on BugGuide - see https://bugguide.net/node/view/626785
