Found this in the backyard of a suburban home. Large in size, looked like a dead leaf. Can anybody tell me what kind of moth it is and if it is in any way harmful (to pets or plants)? There is an apple tree that sometimes gets codling moths, but it does not look like a codling moth. Will this moth harm the apples?
