I found this bug in the house. My son tells me he sees them flying around the lights at night.
Goodness, that is one old dime. Your insect is a Webspinner in the order Embiidina. According to BugGuide, they are also called Footspinners. BugGuide also indicates they are: “more numerous during the rainy season” and “silk galleries are spun under stones and bark, in debris, cracks in soil or bark, among grass roots, lichens, mosses, and epiphytic plants winged males of some species are attracted to artificial light.”
