The Morning Moth

This large moth was on the front porch this morning. Some kind of spotted tiger moth? Anyone more able to identify it?

It is a Sphingid (Sphinx) of some kind-- might be able to tell more later.

Sphinx tend to be longer and narrower. I'm going to say this is a Saturniidae. Probably an oakworm moth (Anisota oslari?)

Be easier to tell if I could see from the front or bottom too.
