Unique leaflike wing shape. Mohawk-like tuft on head. Light dusty brown color over slightly darker base color with purple highlights. Long, "worm-like" antennae rested along wings.
Found in Northeast Missouri, near mostly fruit and nut orchards, but other wooded areas are nearby
Photo taken on brick building outdoors where moth was found. Moth stood with body curved -- possibly a defensive position? Unsure if it is normal/typical for this species.
