Jacob- I am most appreciative
Jacob- I am most appreciative for your identification as of the Erebidae family, a Black Witch Moth (Ascalapha ordorata). It is rather large and I was quite surprised to discover it in my garage.

You have quite a resume, very impressive!!!

 
Thank you!
This is in fact the moth that sparked my fascination with moths!
