Found on car door in garage. What kind of bug is it? Can’t find anything that looks similar to it. Sent the little guy on its way after snapping the pic.
Signature: Thank you!
We believe this is one of the Plume Moths in the family Pterophoridae, though the wings appear to be at a 90 degree angle to one another and we are used to seeing them at a straight 180 degree angle, which when combined with the body gives the resemblance to the letter T, causing people to call them T-Bugs.
