Notodontidae 

Notodontids are heavy-bodied and long-winged. The wings are held folded over the body creating a very cryptic appearance while at rest. They are typically brown in color. The adults are often called prominents because of a tuft of hair on the forewing which protrudes upwards at rest. Adults do not feed. There are 7 species of notodontids that we have found in the Keys. Certain species can be quite abundant at lights.
