Isabella Tiger Moth

Pyrrharctia isabella

Description:

Rust colored moth, with fuzzy thorax and band of darker spots across lower portion of wings. Varies in darkness of spots and bands, some are quite faint.

Habitat:

Spotted on a sheet hanging on my porch with black lights and halogens shining on it at night to attract moths. We live in a gated lake community surrounded by rural agricultural land, and some wooded areas. National Moth Week 2017.

Notes:

Another common moth found on the sheets in our location.
