Observation Notes: 
The moth was flying around my house, and eventually landed on my curtains, after a couple of days I found it on the floor with its underwings showing. It has been on the floor for several hours. It doesn't try to move when I am close, but it is moving its wings occasionally and is in a different position whenever I go in the room.
