Butterfly? Moth?
Found your site while searching the web looking to identify this insect. It landed on our door frame here at work about a month ago – luckily, one of us took a few pictures. It never spread its wings in the two hours we watched it before leaving for the day, so couldn’t get a nice view. Haven’t seen a picture of another fuzzy-legged butterfly yet. Any idea what it is?

Hi Chris,
The Pearly Wood-Nymph, Eudryas unio, is a moth not a butterfly.
