Submitted by: Jackwick
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Clear night, found inside our house. Pale color wings with a horizontal stripe of yellow with another stripe of tannish beneath, which appears to be the second set of wings folding beneath the first. Its antenna have fluffy looking bits stemming off of it. Its wings almost fold over its head, obscuring proportionally small (proportionally small for moths that is) eyes. No visible hairs or fluff. Would love to know any possible identification. Plan to upload a higher quality photo once i can get the photos off my camera.
