found this moth at night…about 2 inches across. It looks like a tiger moth or maybe a wasp mimicking moth? Something else? ? Thanks!

Tiger Moth

Dear Ash,
We agree that this is a member of the group of Tiger Moths known as Wasp Moths.  We have found several similar looking images online.  There is a similarity between your individual and this moth identified as
Amata sperbius that is posted to FlickR, but we believe a closer match is this image identified as Syntomoides imaon also on FlickR.  Here is another member of the genus also pictured on FlickR.
