Can you identify this small but dramatic moth?

Asked June 9, 2016, 2:40 PM EDT

Found it flying around in our garage yesterday, and when it decided to rest on the car, we took a photo. It was less than an inch in length and width. We live in central PA. Thanks for your help!

This is the Eight-spotted Forester moth (Alypia octomaculata). Here's some information about it: http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/species/Alypia-octomaculata
