Grapevine Looper Moth

Hi Jason,
We are certain your moth is a Geometrid Moth in the genus
Eulithis, but we are not certain of the species.  We suspect this is the Greater Grapevine Looper, Eulithis gracilineata, which is pictured on BugGuide, though the Lesser Grapevine Looper, Eulithis diversilineata, also pictured on BugGuide, looks quite similar and BugGuide indicates:  “A text description is needed that explains how to reliably distinguish photos of this species from the similar Greater Grapevine Looper (Eulithis gracilineata).
