I have just found this moth while watering my plants, and for some reason named it MudCruckey (Cruckey for short)...but that doesn't really matter. I am feeding it sugar water as it is VERY tired and will not even flap it's wings if touched, if you find it please make up a small batch of sugar water and put it's mouth up to it and then keep it in a shaded spot till night. If it is ready to fly at night, let it go if it is worn out, wait another night it might just be time for the thing to pass and that might be why it is so tired, just do your best. thanks bye
