I was wondering what kind of bug this is? I live in southwest Missouri and found it outside on the wall. I have never seen this type before and wanted to know if it bites or could be poisonous too. Any help would be great. Thank you!
This harmless moth is a Small Eyed Sphinx, Paonias myops. It does not bite and it is not poisonous.
