Plume Moth

 
When I was out doing assignments yesterday, I saw this moth on someone's house. I had no idea what it was! But thanks to the internet, I quickly learned it is a plume moth, in the family Pterophoridae.

white plume moth

This is completely new to me. But on Bugguide.net there are quite a few of these- white, brown and mottled ones. If they spread their wings they are somewhat ragged, looking almost like feathers. I wish I would have poked it to see if it would flutter or something.

I think they look like little twigs that somehow sprouted wings. Now I want to find more!
