This moth has no shortage of interesting features. The tiny reduced feather duster hind wings might be the best. The spiny legs surely stick out (no, but really). But I think I like the split, feathered ends of the forewings. Interesting little creatures.

Yes, very interesting. Don’ recall having ever seen or even heard of these before.
They’re pretty neat. I’ve photographed maybe two or three different species of these, I think. Quick search on bugguide only showed one result in St. Louis
But there are records of them from March to November…just gotta find where they’re hiding! Pretty small usually, though…
