Usually when I see a drab brown moth on the wall I don't get too excited because the different kinds tend look alike even to a trained entomologist. If you can't identify something, it's hard to learn much about it.
It probably was attracted to our porch light the night before and was resting during the day.
If you remember, I raised one of these back in June. Discovering this one was like spotting an old friend.
Did you find any insects you recognized this week?
