Malacosoma americana - Malacosoma americanum - female

Malacosoma americana - Malacosoma americanum - Female
Merrimack, Hillsborough County, New Hampshire, USA
June 14, 2015
Fresh from the cocoon- raised from a last instar caterpillar. Presumably a female emitting pheromones? It was displaying this behavior since I discovered it in the morning and after I let it go I noticed it was in the same position hours later.
