Hi To You,
Just found about 28 Ghost Moths, which must have hatched over night.
Thought you might like some photos.

Dear Ronda,
Your images are wonderful.  One of them appears to show the shed pupal skin or exuvia.  We will attempt a species identification for you when we have more time to browse through the images in the family Hepialidae on the Butterfly House site.  We have problems differentiating between Ghost Moths and Wood Moths in the family Cossidae which are also pictured on the Butterfly House site.
