Can anyone ID this very small moth? It is only about 1" across.

Treehugger, I didn't forget about you. I've been busy. But I think I found your moth. Here's a link to a Maryland site that says it's a Common Spring Moth (Heliomata cycladata). http://www.marylandbiodiversity.com/viewSpecies.php?species=...

There are some more links on that page if you want to read more. Also, BAMONA shows sightings in PA, as well. http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Heliomata-cyclada...

The Maryland is a great site. Thank you and yes that is the moth. "Common" I've never seen that one before. Hurray!
