Saw a lot of these at a gas station, folded like little tents until I rousted one for a picture.
In our opinion, this looks like one of the Tent Caterpillar Moths in the genus Malacosoma, and there are several species pictured on BugGuide. The only doubt is that BugGuide indicates: “adults in late spring and early summer.”
