Moth At Rest: Black-rimmed Prominent

I found this Black-rimmed Prominent moth at rest upon my back porch window. The photo to the left shows the underside of the moth clinging to the window. Going inside I was able to get a profile view of it in a closed wing position shown on the right.

Another one that's familiar looking. In the UK this would be a Swallow or Lesser Swallow Prominent (they are very similar). In the americas this is probably Black-rimmed Prominent, Pheosia rimosa.
