Help, help … Moth? Butterfly? What-in-the-world IS this?
Hi! What a delight to find your website while searching for “moth tufted tail” !! I’m so curious about the “identity” of this striking little moth (or butterfly?)I found on my door screen in Houston, Texas on a morning in October 2005. It was about 3/4 inches from wingtip to wingtip. Can you tell me what it is?
Thanks in advance!
Ginger

Hi Ginger,
Just last month, we posted a photo of Diaphania hyalinata which goes by the common name Melonworm Moth.
