Rather beat up, but the only one I saw. See comments below--thanks.
(frame 1708).


Looking at other images we have here identified to P. murina based on photos:

It matches, as noted in the comments below, so I am moving it to species level. Also, with its comb-like antennae, though broken off, it appears to be a male, as noted on other images here. The ID seems as clear as it can be based on photos alone.

Moved from Pygarctia.

Moved from Tiger Moths.
Thanks for ID help. Apologies for double comment.

Moved from Tiger Moths.

Moved from Moths.

I feel pretty certain that this is Genus Pygarctia, possibly . Note the orange/pink "colar" between the head and the wings and on the top of the legs.

Moved from Euchaetes. (That might not be the correct genus!)
