Bombyx mori - male

Bombyx mori - Male
Delaware County, Pennsylvania, USA
June 6, 2017
Surprisingly a first for BugGuide. These moths came from a kid's school project and were given to me when the female laid 100+ eggs and the kid's mother was afraid that she will have caterpillars all over her house. The eggs are nearly black and did not hatch. They were probably already dried out before I got them because they were on a paper towel in a shoebox. If this domesticated moth is not suitable for BugGuide it can be frassed.
