    Hi copperti, welcome. Can't help you with the name of your moth, but what a great photo :)

    We have a lot of them around here. We call them closet hoppers, but I'm sure that is a family phrase rather than a scientific one. You might check with your local extensive office. Our office has this guy that can pretty much tell you anything about local insects and plants and he has an awesome picture book for identification.
