Yes it is a skipper! They also have to sleep somewhere ;-)...
So, you have now to update its common name.

Matthew I agree with Bayucca.. Its a Skipper. We find similar Dark Brown Skipper hiding with middy and rock surfaces with such upside down position in narrow congested low level places.

A skipper, Bayucca? Out at night with the other moths?

Nice shots. The eyes look quite spooky with the flash.

This is not a moth, but a skipper! Look at the antennae and notice the white "cheeks". I guess you used flash, so eyes might look like the ones from a ruby-eyed skipper.
