Moth - Callosamia promethea - female

Moth - Callosamia promethea - Female
Pearl River County, Mississippi, USA
April 8, 2010
Id appreciated.

Moved from Callosamia.Thanks Ryan.

I assume this was taken in Pearl River Co, Mississippi?

This is certainly a Callosamia sp., and based on the coloration, this is definitely a C. promethea female, even though there are two other similar species found in the area, the color distinguishes this one from the rest.
