white moth of death

not yet sure what kind of moth this one is because search engines were directing me to superstitions. apparently a white moth represents death or a lost soul trying to find heaven or the spirit of a recently deceased person trying to enter the house which it did. it circled the light bulb so many times it was dizzying then stopped to pose for the camera. will return later with an id.

h g wells’ a moth: genus novo uses a moth as a reincarnation of one of the characters, just to illustrate perhaps a development of these moth superstitions.
