Found on back porch wall in the late evening. At first, I thought this was just another Teliapsocus. However, the relatively short antennae and the rather smaller overall size made me more inclined to take a shot. As can be seen, it is different in the markings of body and wings, too. I couldn't match this visually with anything I saw in the Guide.....
