Live Oak Tussock moth - Orgyia detrita

Live Oak Tussock moth - Orgyia detrita
Lady Lake, Lake County, Florida, USA
April 17, 2006
When I found this larva, I tentavely ID'd it as Orgyia detrita, from Wagner's, found the adult form on MPG. I collected it, and put it in a cage for raising. This is the last instar, looks like a parasitic egg on it.

Hannah, I was pretty excited when I seen it was a female, I was hoping I could get the whole process.
