Wingless moth - Orgyia leucostigma
Chesterfield, St. Louis County, Missouri, USA
October 21, 2014
Found on Bald Cypress (Taxodium distichum). My knowledge here is very limited, but is this in family Geometridae? Would this be a newly emerged female, or egg-laying behavior? Or maybe none of the above :) Thanks in advance.
