Is this Isabella Tiger Moth? - Pyrrharctia isabella
Portland, Cumberland County, Maine, USA July 13, 2008
Isabella seems like a good choice...but I question it because all the pictures show a much lighter colored moth. This color was a deep orangey-brown (pumpkin?), and the underwings a bright orangey-pink.
I would name this the Halloween moth, due to the black and orange.
