Is this moth in its right home?

Dear Bug Guy, My daughter saw this moth on our doorframe, and I took a picture which I am enclosing. I tried to find the moth on here, and after going through numerous pages, by the way, just how many are there? I went back to October of 2007, and still didnt find this moth. When I saw the moth that was sent in by K. on Oct 9, 07 I had to wonder if this moth is in its right home, and of course the big question, What is this Moth? And what is that on its back?
Thank you for any information,

Hi Again Lisa,
We may have posted the photo of the Tolype species after you sent us your photo, but there is currently a moth very similar to yours on our home page.  The genus is Tolype and we are unsure of the species.  The “hairy” or “furry” body is typical of the genus.
