What kind of a moth is this?

Toronto, Canada

This moth was pictured in Ontario, Canada. I can't make out what it is? Can you figure it out?

This is one of the Ghost Moths in the family Hepialidae. It is in the genus Gazoryctra: http://bugguide.net/node/view/116311/bgpage
and to me looks closest to Gazoryctra pulcher


Minot, ND

There is indeed a strong resemblance, but Ontario appears to be far out of range for this species - http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.edu/species.php?hodges=26
