Martinl, That's a really nice picture and description. Too bad it doesn't have an ID, though. :(

ForestDragon, yes! In fact, the camouflage is so good that It took me a while to realize that it's not an ant. When I was trying to photograph it, it also started running around like an ant instead of flying!

That has to be one of the most interesting moths I have ever seen!

Very cool. It looks like a moth mimicking an ant.
