Lovely White with Stripes - Seirarctia echo

Lovely White with Stripes - Seirarctia echo
Ormond Beach, Volusia County, Florida, USA
March 18, 2015
Wow. I mean, wow. This is one of the most beautiful moths I've seen in Volusia county. This thing was a work of art, and I have no idea what it is. Help would be appreciated! I don't have an exact measurement, but it was certainly over an inch. Ideas?

Seirarctia echo
Looks like Seirarctia echo. It is indeed a beautiful moth! Nice find! It looks like yours is only the fourth adult sighting to be submitted to the guide.

 
Thanks, Josiah. Funny thing -
Thanks, Josiah. Funny thing -- unless there's something very similar, I used to see the caterpillars all the time when I was younger, but I didn't know what they were. Two riddles solved for the price of one! Thanks again --
