I just found this moth on the wall of my garage. It's called betularia because birch - Betula - is one of its host plants.

Isn't it a Macho Moth?  I had it for the first time in earlyJune and it comes around occasionally. Sometimes it looks more brown than black. Nice find Chris!...blends in well with the wood.
