1/4 inch long, two-tone brown and beige, speckled dots. Dark eyes. Fairly short antennae. This moth seems to be imitating bird droppings for camouflage.
Pacific Westcoast temperate rainforest. Attracted to light on a sheet at the edge of a blueberry field and garden, with a scrub field behind it.
I wasn't even sure this was a moth at first because of its small size and habit of sitting with its wings totally tight to its body, looking like a tube. Here is a link to some photos of this moth: http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...
