I found this on a door close to light. It was up at the top of the door and this is the best shot I could get tonight.

Moved
Moved from Flannel Moths.

4642 - Lagoa pyxidifera
a beauty. (no rsvp, thanks)

 
Lagoa or Megalopyge?
Just wondering which genus is the current one? If it is Lagoa will they change the one on BG? Should I move the photo to Megalopyge or just leave it for now? Sorry to bother you.

 
I Use the Names in Use at MPG
The specific name and Hodges number are the same (here and at MPG). When in Rome....... It should be placed here under whatever genus is used here.
