unknown tiger moth ?

Florida native


This moth was photographed in late April on the side of a house in east central Florida. It is a coastal habitat, nearby dune, coastal strand plants in the yard.
This moth was 18mm long and 8mm wide (at rest with wings folded as shown). Note the eye visible in the side view. It appears to me that it may be in the tiger moth family, or at least very similar to them.
I have been unable to come up with a satisfactory identification. If you know what this moth is, please e-mail me, the address is on the contact page.

unknown ? is a member of the Arctiidae - Tiger moths family.
