Tiger Moth - Apantesis

Tiger Moth - Apantesis
Springfield, Greene County, Missouri, USA
April 15, 2012
Located near outdoor light.

Moved from Tiger Moths.

Moved from ID Request.

I would suggest...
...Harnessed Tiger Moth (Apantesis phalerata)

But please wait for an expert as there are a couple of other species that look similar to this.

Harnessed Tiger Moth
I"m glad you posted this in i.d. request so that I learned about the Harnessed Tiger Moth. :)

Tiger Moth
What a lovely photo! This is a Virgin Tiger Moth, Grammia virgo.

Virgin, How Can You Tell?
My own tacky, tongue-in-cheek comment, as this forum is G rated. ;-) The iPhone comes in handy again.

I need to stop trying to i.d. moths in the middle of the night. :)

Been there
Still do it :)
