day-flying moth - Cisseps fulvicollis
Pensacola Beach, Florida, USA
November 18, 2005
Size: 15-20 mm
Those moths were abundant on the beach and in the streets in Pensacola (being hurled into the sea by the wind). All that you don't see in the picture is solid black, and they are very poor flyers.

Thanks a lot for your reply and the info.
