Can you identify this moth?

Asked April 4, 2013, 12:32 PM EDT

We found this moth this morning. The closest identification we could find looked like an owl-eyed bird dropping or cerma cora. They are only found in the eastern to mid-states. So, what is this moth, and is it one we should be concerned about?
