as you can see from the picture it is small size..probably about 2 inches.
found it in my screen door.
Halley, you might have to go with GCDruenn's suggestion - he's helped a few with their IDs. You could check out if there are any Orache plants growing in your area or any other food plant of the caterpillar of the Trachea species of moths.Good luck !
i have uploaded another pic with less harsh light..i hope it helps..
searched both potential id...they look soo similar, the patterns are also similar, the patterns on legs are also similar.Orache moth seems more like it.but dont want to put wrong id out there unless it is sure...so what should i do guys?
Sim.] Orache MothNoc.: Trachea sp.
Halley, Your moth could be "Checupa fortissima". It seems to have lost a lot of scales so am not sure if the identity is correct but the basic pattern appears to be the similar. Please check. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Checupa_fo...If my suggestion is incorrect, I hope some one else with expertise can help. It must have been a beautiful moth. Thank you for sharing this.
