Looks different from dead leaf moth. The front part looks very similar to that of the buff tip moth, but not the wing patterns.

Yes it is, Martin. The only thing that gives it away is the "hairy" appearance of its surface, as most leaves in this area are smooth.

How fascinating is that.
Sergio, I almost didn't bother to look closer.
What a master of disguise!
