Hi, I bet somebody has posted this before but I searched all the way back to 2007 and can't find it.

Also did a search but "dark blue moth" didn't generate any results.

I hope you can id it for me again... thanks! :)

As discussed, this is one of the species of the family Ricaniidae. It's quite common and many of us have shot it before. If you disturb it, it jumps off with a strong flick.

Yes, it is a hopper. It is often mistaken for a moth.
