Yes, tough--A. peigleri out now in this area
Anisota peigleri, not described in guides, is out now here in Durham, I believe. I just had two emerge from pupa from last summer. They look pretty much like this and A. stigma. Very tough, I don't think these can be separated as adults, I guess they have to be left to genus.
