I found this lovely insect clinging to my back door last week. I asked my friends to identify it for me because I wasn’t sure. Most said it was a stink bug but there were a adamant few who said it was a moth. What say you? I’d appreciate your input. Thanks so much.

Dear Barb,
This is a moth, not a Stink Bug, and we are confident it is a Sallow Moth in the genus
Feralia based on images posted to BugGuide, but we are not certain of the species.

Thanks so much for getting back to me so quickly.  There was somewhat of a debate on this.  You cleared it up.
With much appreciation,
I really enjoy your site and your Facebook page.
