Red-waisted Florella Moth - Hodges #5284 - Syngamia florella
Mobile (Dog River), Mobile County, Alabama, USA
October 12, 2008
Size: ~ 20mm wingspan
I have been unsuccessful in my search to ID this small, colorful tiger. If I don't get any responses, do I get to name it :)

Sorry
it's quite a common moth in the south. Syngamia florella. You got our first AL image, though. : )

 
Oh, Well
And it's not even a tiger. As always, thank you for your guidance.
