CLOSED: Is this a plume moth? If so, what kind?

Morrisville, PA

I saw this in Bucks County, Southeastern Pennsylvania (last night for the first time, and then this photo was taken today).

From what I'm seeing online it looks like this is a plume moth? Yes? If so, anyone know what kind?

Yes, it is a plume moth (Lepidoptera: Pterophoridae); likely in the genus Geina. I hesitate to pin a specific name on it, as there are several species that superficially look very much alike - see and for a couple of examples.

Thanks suunto! (LONG time since you replied, just seeing this now. Much appreciated.)
