Moth larvae

Description:

About ten days ago, late in the evening, I saw a moth sitting on our sliding glass door. This is a fairly common occurrence, so I didn't think anything of it until I noticed the egg cluster the following day. Yesterday they started hatching out. The individual eggs are just under a millimeter across.

Notes:

No idea what the species is. 48 hours since they started hatching and a few laggards are still emerging from their eggs.
