Tussock Moth? - Dasychira manto

Tussock Moth? - Dasychira manto
Columbia, Boone County, Missouri, USA
September 18, 2007
Size: 1/2 inch
Found on what I think may be a Hackberry or something... Some sort of Tussock moth I guess...

Moved from Orgyiini. This looks to be manto with the swordlike black setae in the ubspiracular tufts, but that is described as a pine feeder. Any pine nearby?

Now thatyou mention it there is one in my neighbor's yard...
The tree was probably like 60 feet away.
