This insect was hanging on the purple passion vine yesterday afternoon. It has been there since about 4 PM yesterday and it is still there now. It is 10 AM here now. I am located in SW Florida near Naples.

We are very happy to post your photo of a female Io Moth. The males of the species have yellow, not brown wings. The underwings, which are hidden from view, have eyespots that are used to frighten predators.
