Pink-shaded Fern Moth

Callopistria mollissima


attracted to porch light in a wooded area


The outrageous leg and dorsal tufts are so Victorian! A dorsal view reduces the profile of the moth and looks like a T. I will try and find that pic and post it too. The scales on the body are cool and the extended tufts of leg scales are neat too.
