Spiny Oakworm Moth

Anisota stigma

Description:

Late afternoon sighting on a dusty window at the gas station. The colors are a little brighter than they appeared in real life, which were richer and rustier. But, cool thing, I've discovered during Moth Week that Mississippi State University has a Moth Photographers Group ... that's great news!

Notes:

Fairly confident in my ID on this moth ... although I also looked at Pink-striped Oakworm Moth, Anisota virginiensis.
