Beautiful Wood Nymph

Eudryas grata


This moth has a black band behind its head, hair legs, and a red stripe at the end of its wings. In other pictures I've seen of this species, the red color is much brighter, and there are even patches of green as well. You can see a slight curve of green at the back of the wing, which distinguishes it from E. unio.




I'm not sure why, but it reminds me of a furry bear. For more information, check out BugGuide's page:
