According to the Wikipedia article on moths in Japan, Japan has over 6,000 moths (varieties, that is!), one of which I saw on my door the other day.
This F-117 Nighthawk-shaped little insect, a mere 2.5 or 3 cm long, looked drab at first glance, but closer inspection revealed a rich, perfectly symmetrical embroidery of myriad shades of cream and brown dabbed aesthetically with touches of moss green.
Despite extensive internet searching, I was unable to identify this moth, so leave just a photographic record of it here as a kind of moth encountered in early fall in Tokyo.
