I found this insect on the side of my house and I have no idea where to start for an identification. Thoughts?
Thanks in advanced

Dear Ed,
Based on this and other images posted to BugGuide, we believe your moth is a Pug, a Geometrid Moth in the genus Eupithecia.  According to BugGuide, they are   “Commonly referred to as pugs because of the short underwings.”
