Lappet Moth

Euglyphis sp

Description:

A smallish (less than 1 1/2 inches wide) that is a mottled mixture of gray and rust colors. The feet, head and, presumably antenna are a fuzzy gray.

Habitat:

Found on the end of a wood building under a light at 04:30 in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador.

Notes:

Sorry, I only have one picture. These pictures were not taken with the intent of identifying. Hopefully someone can narrow down the classification for me more than "moth." :-) Thanks.
