Pancake Moth?

  I have no clue what this tiny white moth is, there are so many moths that look similar to this one, they are nearly impossible for me to distinguish one from another. This one was flattened on a leaf in the timber, he did not move. It was almost as if he was saying "If I lay real still, she won't see me, nope nope nope"  Look at those eyes, very goggle-like.

From the shape of this little moth I would say it is in the family Geometridae with the other Geometer moths.....but I could be completely wrong too.....Pancake moth it is, he was flatter than one that's for sure.
