Description:

Have been unable to identify this moth. It blends in perfectly with the ground. I saw it fly in and land in front of me, otherwise I would not have seen it. It seems to be in the genus Renia series but cannot identify it any further.

Habitat:

On a wooded path in the woods in Lewisburg, West Virginia.
