Imperial Moth

Eacles Imperialis

Description:

Wingspan about 100mm

Habitat:

Mostly rural area. Found at the bottom of a door under a large overhead light.

Notes:

When I got into work this morning I unlocked the shop and opened the door without noticing the large moth clinging to the bottom of the door. A few minutes later a coworker came to me and said, "Did you see that moth on the door? It's about the size of my hand." I imagine it was attracted to the light above the door.

Yes it is. I had not seen these before in Nebraska and was very excited to see it. My coworkers always get a kick about seeing me react to these things.
