PS Great site. I’ve learned a lot browsing through old queries. Thanks in advance for identification.

Hi Roberta,
We do not have the skill to take this Tiger Moth to the species level, but it is in the genus Grammia. Just a peek on the BugGuide site will show you how similar the various species in the genus are. If we were gambling, we might say Parthenice Tiger Moth, Grammia parthenice.
