I found this moth on the floor, for this reason, the picture is not complete. At first, I thought it was a plian yellowish-brown. But the close up shows some interesting marks. If you can help identify it, I would be grateful!

Thank you,

Not sure why these have two
different dates. We linked them together anyway since they seem to be the same specimen.

Not just same specimen:
This is the same image, with the second being shrunk to a lower resolution. This is confirmed by the EXIF data, which shows both to have been taken at 1:29:36 on 1/16/2007. Given that the first image was posted before the date on the second image, the date on the second image has to be in error.
