Can you determine the species of this day flying moth?

Erateina cometaris we believe

Hi Jim,
This is a beautiful moth.  Thanks for providing us with the genus.  We would never have suspected this diurnal moth to be in the family Geometridae.  We would have guessed Uraniidae.  We believe we have matched your individual to the photos of a mounted specimen of
Erateina cometaris that we located on caterpillars.unr.edu.
