White Spotted Sable

Found this little guy on my garage door last spring or summer. He stayed in one spot for several days. I wrote to a couple of Michigan Universities in the proper departments but they will not answer my emails. Can you identify this little guy? He was only about 5/8 inch long. I live 45 miles north of Saginaw Michigan.

Hi There,
We believe this is a White Spotted Sable, Anania funebris. The reason we are not positive is the absence of a small white spot on the upper wings. It could be the poor quality of your image, or this might be a variation or a closely related species.
