Hi Mark, I didn't even venture a guess on this one, especially because of how it looked from the side. But Juan Carlos Garcia Morales of iNaturalist gave an ID as the subfamily Larentiinae of the Geometridae. Go figure!
Does look like lots of the Larentiinae on the web, shaped like this one: http://gallery.kunzweb.net/main.php?g2_i....

The ant is "tending" the scale in exchange for the sweet excrement that the scale produces.

May be a nymphal Psocid covering itself with fungi?
