Yellow-edged Pygarctia - Hodges#8255 (Pygarctia abdominalis) - Pygarctia abdominalis
Tyler County, Texas, USA
May 25, 2010
My first reaction was that this was a Pygarctia abdominalis but after reading Covell's guide, it didn't indicate Texas as part of that species' range; also Covell's says it's found in coastal areas. Tyler County is in the Pineywoods of East TX. Maybe more has been learned since Covell's was printed. I have additional images from underneath the moth if those would be helpful.
