Cool spotting!

Right around there, Emma. I think that 5-10 mm would be too small, but I could be wrong.

about 15 mm? Quite large.
Could they have moths between 5mm to 10 mm in the litter moth group?

Thanks Emma! When the wings were closed, as in this photo, it had a wingspan of about 3/4 of an inch.
