Hi ElizaBethAigner, beautiful first spotting! All insects, arachnids, crustaceans (pretty much anything with an exoskeleton) go in the Arthropods category. The "Others" category is for things like jellyfish, starfish, snails, slugs, etc. I have moved your spotting into Arthropods for you. :-)

One of common names for this beautiful moth is
Elegant Sheep Moth

In the scientific name section, please only put the genus and species names (so you would just put Hemileuca eglanterina). You can add the additional information in the Description or Notes section if you wish. Here are a couple of links for this species:

This is a great community for sharing your photos of living organisms. I hope you enjoy it here.

Please take a few minutes to read through the FAQ page for general guidelines for posting and other info on the site.
