Butterfly ID anyone? Vous connaissez les papillons?

This butterfly was on the ceiling of the kitchen last night. I had never noticed this species before. I do know very little about butterflies. Would you know which species this is? It does measure (+-) 3/4 inch or 1.5 cm from head to tail. (Update – I believe this may be the Small Magpie – Eurrhypara hortulata L.)

Ce petit papillon (3/4 pouce ou 1.5 cm environ) était au plafond dans notre cuisine hier soir. Je n’avais jamais remarqué cette espèce auparavant. Je ne connais pas bien les papillons de nuit.  Le reconnaissez-vous? (Note – je crois qu’il pourrait s’agir de la pyrale de l’ortie – Eurrhypara hortulata L.).

  1. Looks more like a moth, mais je ne sais pas le papilion
