A very unusual Moth with the hind wings held down and folded into an irregular shape. It must help hide the shape of the moth when resting on bark. About 7 mm long. It rests similar to the Plume Moths. Family Uraniidae, Subfamily Epipleminae.
Came to an ultraviolet light in the garden, San Cristobal de Las Casas, 2,200 meters.
Based on the color pattern and the wrinkle lines in the wings, I suspect that the last two pictures are the same moth with it's wings extended.
