Hello Bugman,
I saw an interesting moth, on the concrete, at the train station in Lindenwold, NJ in Camden County. I grew up in this region and can’t remember seeing a moth like this. I looked online, but I could find info on a moth that looks like this.
Thanks,
Leah

Dear Leah,
We thought your moth resembled a
Tolype, but after searching through Lappet Moth images and other families on BugGuide, we shifted strategies, and went to the Moth Photographers Group where we found you White Furcula Moth, Furcula borealis.  Once we had a name, we easily located the species on BugGuide where it is classified as a Prominent Moth.  The only other image on our site of a White Furcula Moth was submitted nine years ago.

Daniel,
You rock! Thanks for the information.
Have a great weekend!
Leah
