Hickory Tussock Moth - Lophocampa caryae

Hickory Tussock Moth - Lophocampa caryae
Dawes Arboretum, Licking County, Ohio, USA
June 7, 2006
Size: ~3cm, head to wingtips
Found in the daytime hanging from a shaded leaf. ID based on BugGuide and MPG images. Found at the Japanese Garden at Dawes Arboretum. Worth a visit if you're in east/central Ohio. Wish I could've spent more time there.

Thanks - what a pretty moth!
