Notodontidae moth

Phalera raya

Description:

small moth that looks like a twig resting on a railing.

Habitat:

tropical forest

Notes:

I spotted this at Nam Nao National Park. There were a ton of cool moths and butterflies all around the Headquarters of the park. I'd never seen a moth like this. I really thought it was a fallen stick on the railing when I first saw it.
