The differences are rather subtle, primarily in differing color of the abdomen and coverage of the yellow/orange scales on the head/pronotum. The latter site I mentioned (Virginia Ctenucha Moth - Ctenucha virginica) may be of some help.

Thanks Suunto
I see the difference now that I know what to look for.

These all are from prior Octobers; I cannot remember if they were entered at that time...

I don't usually participate in the contest but I have a lot of favorites from October, I just don't know which ones to choose!

I'll go with this one of a gulf fritillary from last October, a mosaic of fall colors, tuliptrees and red cedars in late afternoon both from this October and dogwood fruit on bare branches taken today. I love this season!

Very nice! - Your area appears far more colorful than ours this year - we had to settle for muted browns and yellows... :-(
