Large winged white insect?

Hello, My mother (Gay Bumgarner) was a professional nature photographer and usually her materials are well labeled with both the common and latin names. However, for the picture I am attaching there is no information on the slide at all.

Dear S. McDonnell MD,
This is a Plume Moth in the family Pterophoridae, but we are uncertain of the species.
Wow, what a great service. Thanks! I will donate and tell my friends. Too bad we can’t do this in medicine
You are lucky to not be getting advice from untrained amateurs in medicine.
