Hemileuca eglanterina annulata
J - from what I read there is a lot of variability in color
Thanks Maria. The moth was in the middle of the path I was hiking on. I thought it was dead, so I picked it up. It slowly opened itself up so I took a few photos and put it on a tree. It made my day
Looks quite similar. Yours looks a little darker, but that could just be variability.
I think I got it J What do you think?
Thanks for the direction. I will continue to look.
Beautiful! Looks like a buck moth in the genus Hemileuca. I can't find a species match, maybe if you submit it to bugguide.net, they will be able to find species. Could you please add this to my mission?http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/8841...Thanks!
