Is this Isabella Tiger Moth? - Pyrrharctia isabella
Portland, Cumberland County, Maine, USA

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.

Isabella Tiger Moth
I believe you are correct. I have many around my house and they all look like yours. I like your name for it too.

 
Thanks
Thanks David for confirmation!
