This is likely a Chloroclystis or Gymnoscelis sp

Yes, Chloroclystis looks likely, but I could not match the image with any labelled Chloroclystis species level images I could find online, although to my eye, based on the hindwing pattern, C. catastreptes seemed close, but this is a grey-looking specimen.

The shape of the hindwing (in the context of its overall appearance) suggests it must be C. catastreptes, filata or testulata. It does look closest to catastreptes, but it isn't really close to any of the mostly worn ANIC specimens, although this specimen seems to be a fresh one. I think Chloroclystis sp is as far as we can go.
