This looks like a female Fall Cankerworm Moth, but with all the male Linden Loopers out right now, this just maybe a female Linden Looper (which is wingless, too). I'm hoping to learn this specimen's identity. I'll post two images of this specimen. Thank you! ;-)

Moved from Moths. I'm identifying this based on the eggs, but if the image on this page is representative of what female linden loopers look like, they're pretty different-looking anyway.

 
Thank you!
Thanks for your help with this, Charley! ;-) Here's the video clip of the specimen: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pD9LdMdotuc

not sure if you're aware of this forum thread -- provides guidelines to make ID process and BG work in general more efficient. thanks for your contributions!

 
Thanks!
Yes, I'm aware. I'll move the photos to the correct taxa right now. ;-)
