This moth was in my car when I came back from PA. I think it may have hatched out in the car since the windows were closed and it didn't fly too well'. When i took it out of the car and it was on my hand it fluttered it's wings very rapidly before flying away. About a 2 inch wingspan.
I would love to know it's name.

Thank you! It must have warmed up when I turned the heat on in the car.
