unknown clearwing moth - Alcathoe caudata
Coal Center, Washington County, Pennsylvania, USA

This is a pretty bad picture but when I first saw the moth, I didn't have my camera so I had to run in the house for it and come back out...and not a minute later, I found the moth again but it was in the clutches of a crab spider! Of all moths to get caught, it was a new species I hadn't seen in my garden before.

Moved from ID Request. Unless someone thinks it should be tossed....
