My husband found a moth that looks like this but slightly more brown. It looks like the same markings. It was in Washington State just north of Poulsbo. Is that possible?

I saw a lovely living specimen near Winslow Wharf Marina on Bainbridge Island, WA on may 19, 2013. I judged it to be a female since its antenna was of the less bushy type than the male. It crawled onto my outstretched finger and flexed its wings for several minutes before flying off. This location is about 10 miles from Poulesbo, WA where another specimen was reported on your site.

I just identified this moth online. It's been on my front porch all day, funny thing is I live near Richmond Va.

As far as I can tell, a female moth of this species rested on a door to my house today in Vancouver, WA. Its antennae are dainty; thus, it seems to be female. The colors are more in the brown range, rather than maroon, but the markings are exactly the same. The wingspan is a bit longer than 4.5". It remained on my door for several hours. Then,apparently, it died and fell from the middle of the door straight down, where I found it, fully intact.
