It looked so cool....Very small...just hanging on the siding of the house...Anybody know what kind it is

Moved
to guide page.

Can I come to your house?
Your moths rule!

Emerald
This is one of the Emeralds, and I believe it is Showy Emerald.

 
What about the dots
I read somewhere that a Showy Emerald's wings have wide, straight, white lines and black distal dots. I din't see any dots...can it still be a showy emerald
