A beautiful moth with black and white markings on its wings. Unfortunately it was found dead.
Your moth looks like the Explicit Arches Moth (Lacinipolia explicata).See http://bugguide.net/node/view/30731 for a species guide.See http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/2283... for a DC/MD moth mission.
It certainly was a beauty
