BEAUTIFUL MOTH
Hi Bugman.. I found this picture at a real estate site we are corresponding with in Dunlap, Tennessee. Someone building one of their log homes stopped and took this picture on the side of the house. They captured and kept this picture on their site. I decided to send it to you, in hopes you could identify it? It is gorgeous and seems rather large. Can you let me know what this spectacular, furry moth is? Thanks so much!

Hi Nanette,
This moth is a Large Tolype, Tolype velleda, a relative of the Tent Caterpillar.
