These moths are members of the micromoth family and have unusually modified wings. At rest, these interesting moths look like a capital “T” or like a glider.
They resemble a piece of dried grass, which helps them go unnoticed by potential predators. There are over 160 species of plume moths in the US and Canada, primarily found in the west …making identification to exact species very difficult.
