Moth - Hyalophora euryalus - Female

June 29, 2016
Found at Riverbend campground along the Chiwawa River. Am guessing this is a female Ceanothus Silkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus).

Moved from Hyalophora.


Moved from ID Request. Moved for the experts in case this is a hybrid of sorts.

ID of this Moth…
With wings being dark brown to red-brown. The gray area outside the white postmedian band does not contain any red. Crescent spots on the forewings and hindwings are white,... It appears to be a Columbia silkmoth (Hyalophora columbia).Check here to be sure…

I disagree
I am almost certain this is H. euryalus, ssp. kasloensis.
Just look at the long HW eyespots, they look very euryalus to me., also, H. columbia in WA would be ssp. gloveri. The is a chance that this is some form of hybrid Hyalophora as well.
