Yes, that is a Mournful Thyris.  Here is a pic of one with a large group of 
Hackberry Emperors.  The size and markings are correct.

  This past Sunday (April 25th) I did some butterfly chasing in SE White County 
and came across this interesting pair of travelers.  The butterfly is clearly a 
Silver-spotted Skipper, of which there were many that day.  But sitting next to 
the skipper is what I think is a Mournful Thyris (Pseudothyris sepulchralis, 
Hodges #6077).  As I am a neophyte to the world of moths, please let me know if 
this id is correct.
