Ok I found it! It's called Nine-spotted moth (I guess it has nine spots on its wings....). http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nine-spotte...

The Oleander Moth isnt exactly the same. It has a red end rather then a yellow stripe. But it really is similar: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Syntomeida_...

Oleander Moth is what we call it here. It lays it's eggs either on Oleander or Alamanda vines. I have been trying to get a picture of one here in Florida around my Alamanda.
