Forbes' Silkmoth - Rothschildia forbesi

Forbes' Silkmoth - Rothschildia forbesi
near McCook, Hidalgo County, Texas, USA
June 5, 2006
Showed up overnight near an outside light I had left on. Perched on a wooden post. I believe it is Rothschildia lebeau forbesi, but would appreciate confirmation. This was on a private ranch just NE of McCook, Texas.

Moved from Moths.

Always a treat to see these!
Thank you!
