Found it!  Zale lunata.
<http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/2001/macronw/112.htm>.  Caterpillar
is <http://www.npwrc.usgs.gov/resource/2000/catnw/pht42.htm>.  They
tend to eat willows but are polyphagous on other trees and shrubs.

Even better than finding a probable ID on my moth via random browsing,
was finding that you can batch download sections of the Moths of North
America site, and have your own local copies of "Macromoths of
Northwest Forests and Woodlands" and of "Caterpillars of Pacific
Northwest Forests and Woodlands".

Links to the .zip files are at the bottoms of the contents pages:

And lots more interesting stuff at the parent level:
