New Unknown Moth

NOTE how the different light seems to change his color.
All four shots are different colors in my eyes, especially with back-light.
And to tell the truth, the one above one is dead while the others are alive.
Some die in my house nearly every night this time of year.
Many butterflies/moths only live a few days naturally.

I am calling it a moth because the antennae have no little ball on the end like butterflies. The other characteristic is a “furry” body which is hard to tell in these photos but looks like it could be, especially in the top photo. Plus I cannot find it in my new most complete butterfly book for Central America and none of the brown butterflies or moths online match it, so I call it “unknown moth” for now.

And by the way, my computer is working fine right now! Maybe it was the heat and humidity of the coast that caused it to keep turning off every few minutes. Who knows?! Computers! 
See my photo gallery of Butterflies and Moths found in Costa Rica and neighboring countries at 53 species now!
