see the little feelers?
its a girl!

a pink striped oak worm moth!

not sure
This is defineatly a female Anisota spp, either A. peigleri or A. stigma, There seems to be too much spotting on the forewings to be a pink striped oakworm moth A. virginiensis.

Thanks, I wasn't sure.

Glad to help!
It was my sister who told me what it was! I'm glad we could help!

Field Guide
What guide are you using? I have a hundred year old one by Holland, but am looking for something w/ live specimens.

Field Guide
My personal favorite is the Kaufman Feild Guide to the Insects of North America! It's written by a member of this website, Eric Eaton! It's the one I carry on my person at all times! Including to school!

you know of course
clicking on the moth icon on the left will take you to all the moth familys and stuff? not everything is in here yet but as more people add more stuff, eventually there will be.
and there is also a site called moth photographers group just for moths? it has photos of living moths and spread moths both.
