Ranchman's Tiger Moth - partial life cycle - Arctia virginalis

Ranchman's Tiger Moth - partial life cycle - Arctia virginalis
Thompson Falls, MT County, Montana, USA
June 6, 2021
We had this in the classroom. It took about 2 days to create its chrysalis. First it created the hairy "tent", then it started forming the chrysalis ... at one point partially hairy, at another point it was partially white. It just emerged today ... 2 days after school got out. Darn.
