Cankerworms
also have wingless moths in the fall. See this site.

Painted Pine Moth
I found something by searching wingless moth on google... see comparison shots here about 3/4 down the page. Of course, yours is probably some other wingless moth since that link is to Australia.

 
white masked moth, female
thanks for the help Lynette, you were in the right ballpark. the one you found is very similar to what i have found. thanks again.

Moth
It certainly looks like a moth of some sort, but I've never seen anything like it before either.
