Many-spotted tiger moth - Hypercompe permaculata - female

Many-spotted tiger moth - Hypercompe permaculata - Female
~ 16.7 km SE of Drumheller (E of Hwy. 10), Division No. 5, Alberta, Canada
October 11, 2008
Found it as larva in the roadside grass. The larva was not diapausing yet, or if it was, i managed to break its diapausing cycle by bringing it indoors. It was fed with fresh lettuce and moulted once more before pupating. Judging by the many empty pupal cases this species seems to be rather common at that location. Habitat: badlands.
