Reddish-brown moth. Wingspan about 1.25 inches (rough estimate)


Found resting on a concrete wall on an Emory building


Until you're right next to it, this moth looks like a dead leaf. It hides in plain sight. Anyone want to help me ID this?

I'd start looking in the family Geometridae and the group referred to as carpet moths
