New England Buck Moth - Hemileuca lucina - male

New England Buck Moth - Hemileuca lucina - Male
Harvard, Worcester County, Massachusetts, USA
September 20, 2005
New England Buck Moth is distinguished from Buck Moth by the black dots on top of the wing not touching the black part of the inner wing. There were about 100 moths flying over several adjoining fields. I watched them for an hour, and none landed. I had to chill this one then he flew off after a minute warming up. It was a nice site.
