1/2" long Grammia sp. tiger moth. I can't find an exact match on bugguide.
Here it is:http://bugguide.net/node/view/425677For some reason they weren't showing up! I've never heard of it until now, and I think it's pretty uncommon!
Thanks Jacob!There are no images of this on bugguide & only photos of a pinned specimen on bamona so I'm guessing this is an uncommon species?
It's the first time I've seen this particular species & the 4th different species I've found in the exact same spot over the past week! I've discover if if blow very gently on them they will usually reveal their underwings for a few seconds.
How interesting that the white markings disappear before reaching the outer forewing. Beautiful!
