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

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