I spotted this bug outside my front door in west central Florida. It was a calm sort, remained there for hours until I finally got around to taking its picture. I have never seen anything like it. I would appreciate it if you could tell me/us what it is.
BTW what a great site. Those polka-dotted wasp moths have been scaring me for years, but no more. Thanks
This is another of the Wasp Mimic Arctiid Moths, the Spotted Oleander Caterpillar Moth, Empyreuma affinis. We didn’t recognize the species, but quickly located it on BugGuide.
