Eight-spotted Forester

Alypia octomaculata

Description:

2 photos. The wings must be spread to see all eight spots. In the second photo you can see the face and legs. This moth flies from Feb-May in Texas.

Habitat:

It was hanging onto a dead grass stalk out back in the open area of our property on a fairly cold, overcast morning.
