Creamy colored moth with colorful pattern behind its head.
Found in NYC
The only notable moth for me during Moth Week and it was dead :( I'm still keeping the dream alive (and my eyes open) for more moths!
Jacob, I had no idea! That's wild. Thanks for sharing. Moth Week has been awesome and I'm so glad we all got to be a part of the very first one! I'm looking forward to 51 more weeks of moth hunting until next year's Moth Week :)
Awesome find, Yasser! I just learned this moth, in its eastern reigon can only be distinguished by the Sycamore Tussock Moth by genitalia dissection. You can read more here: http://bugguide.net/node/view/541Beautiful moth, and thanks so much for everything during National Moth Week! It was great!
That's right bayucca! One thing is for sure, Moth Week has made me much more observant of the little flying things that I see at night :) It's amazing what we find if we only pause to look. Congrats again on your recognition. You truly deserved it!
There are still 51 moths weeks left ;-)... Thanks again!
