Observation Notes: 
i see this type of moth inside my apartment regularly...one every few days or so. they are usually in the kitchen, though i have seen one in the bathroom on a couple of occasions. my husband captures the moth each time and takes it outside. i have not seen more than one at a time. they are usually sitting on a wall and do not seem very active. I do not know if they are breeding inside somewhere or how they might be getting inside.
