Moth ID question
I found this beautifully camouflaged moth blending into the brick of my parent’s home in Kilmarnock , Virginia . I have been through a few of my insect guides, and am guessing it is in the Saturnidae family, but can’t find an exact match. Could you please tell me which variety he is? Thanks!

Hi Elizabeth,
Most guides would picture the distinctive open winged pose of the Polyphemus Moth. That view displays the prominent eyespots.
