Grape Leaffolder Moth
Desmia funeralis

I was out on a hike with CT's Corps of Discovery (a crack swat team of naturalist comandoes) when this little
day-flying pyralid presented itself .

They are fairly common, day and night, and I suppose would be considered some kind of wasp mimic.  I love finding them flying in the dark, though.  All you see are two arcs of white created by the blurring of the white spots as the wings are flapping.
