Could you help me to identify this moth please?

A friend of mine has a lot of them all around her house.
They are the same color as the stucco on the house and they like the south side for warmth.
They are not as plentiful as they were - but they do get into the greenhouse.
I killed one that i found at the base of a tomato plant. Their interior wings as pink/coral color.
They are just flying about everywhere...

Impossible to be certain from this image - could be a salt marsh caterpillar moth -
