This fly ? is about 3/4″ long and1″ wide long antenna, brown fur body, several have showed up in my basement. (Severna Park, MD)
After looking at some other photos, I realized your moth is the Euonymus leaf notcher with the scientific name – Pryeria sinica. Evidently this is a new pest as noted by the Dept of Agriculture in May 30, 2003 -” New Moth Found in Maryland on Ornamentals”. They suspect that the way it was introduced to the U.S. was from nursery stock from the Far East.
It seems to be located in Maryland and Virginia as of right now.
The larva of this moth feeds on Euonymus plants and Celastrus species. It can defoliate the shrub.
The moth lays the eggs on the stems in the late fall, with the larva emerging mid March. For control find the egg masses in the fall, cut them off and burn. Then in the spring, if you find the small larva from mid to late March you should spray Bacillus thuringiensis (BT) a bacteria the kills the caterpillars. Follow label instructions.
It might be good for everyone in those states to destroy/burn all the Euonymus plants to try to prevent this pest from spreading!
Not sure when you sent in the photo, but if in the fall the moths may have entered your basement thru an open window, dryer vent, or crack near a Euonymous bush.
