Pretty porch moth

Southern Purple Mint Moth

Southern Purple Mint Moth

It didn't take me long to identify this as a Southern Purple Mint Moth, Pyrausta laticlavia.   Hmmm... We're not in a southern state, I think it looks more pink than purple, and it's probably feeding on something other than mint, so what's in a name?
