Hello! My kids and I recently came across this moth on the side of a local building. I have attached two photos. One of which contains my seven-year-old’s hand for scale. I am wondering if this is a Cecropia Moth. We live on Maryland’s Eastern Shore.
Dear Shenal Family,
This is a Royal Walnut Moth or Regal Moth, not a Cecropia Moth.
Ohh, I’ve only just seen that you have about a million pictures of these on your site. Sorry. I’ll look harder first, next time.
