Lesser Common Rustic Moth (thanks to DD for ID)

Observation - Lesser Common Rustic Moth (thanks to DD for ID). Description: so far my closest ID is Black Rustic, tho a worn one (i think the larger light patch towards the head & body is likely wear)... i think the other thing making me question this ID is that it's a bit early from what i've read of Black Rustic (more September

so far my closest ID is Black Rustic, tho a worn one (i think the larger light patch towards the head & body is likely wear)... i think the other thing making me question this ID is that it's a bit early from what i've read of Black Rustic (more September than July). but the blackberries are out early this year too, so...?
all input appreciated, thanks :)
