I think this is the aptly named Mycterophora longipalpata, attracted to light. MPG has a good comparison photo and shows this moth in my area.

Moved from Geometrid Moths.

I'm clearing out Lepidoptera
I figured you would take care of the geos I got back in circulation.

I can place some of them, even if they are part of Erebidae, lol. Merry Christmas guys!

Certainly had me fooled! Those hindwings are especially misleading. Merry Christmas!

Thanks Aaron and Bob. Merry Christmas!
