Couldn't leave a message on the moth because on my computer the video is preventing me from getting access to the "post comment"
Did you read near the bottom of
Range: Maine west across southern Canada to southeastern Manitoba, the Dakotas, Nebraska, and Colorado; south to the Florida Keys, the Gulf states, Texas, and New Mexico; Mexico south to Costa Rico.
Now remember this is only suggestion of an ID. You may need an expert to confirm it.

Thank you Mauricio. Volvere de vez en cuando para ver si alguien le ha hecho identificaccion.

look up Stapelia spp. might help with identification. It could be Stapelia gigantea, which is indigenous to Southern Africa

Beautiful. Is that beautiful flower from the cactus behind it? I want one or two in my Garden!
