Wingless Winter Moth - Operophtera bruceata - Female
Puyallup, Pierce County, Washington, USA
December 7, 2007
Size: 8 mm?
Found this on the side of the house. It looked a bit like a giant bark aphid at first. I'm assuming this is the same species as the male here .

Moved
Moved from Operophtera. Thanks, the ID suggested for the male was the same, so I moved them there.

I would say that this is O. bruceata
because the wing buds are much smaller then the ones on the female O. brumata, but in the western U.S., I can't be sure.
