Yellow and grey moth with what looks like a chain pattern across the wings.
Welcome! We are a big family here and somebody would always have some IDeas ;-)...
Awesome! I had never seen one of these before but I knew someone here would have. Thanks for the quick identification.
It is either Halysidota tessellaris or Halysidota harrisii. Unfortunately it is not possible to separate them without the native specimen. You need a genital dissection, meaning killing the moth or DNA sample.Although the ressemblance is amazing it is not serious to call your Tessellaris:http://bugguide.net/node/view/28114/bgpa...http://mothphotographersgroup.msstate.ed...
