Dear Bugman,
I took this picture mid-July but cannot find out what kind of moth this is. Any information on this beautiful furry little creature would be appreciated. Your website helped me identify another moth that I took pictures of in the same flower garden. The Hummingbird Clearwing Moth. I live in central Illinois and have seen more variety of moths this year than any other. Thanks,
April
P.S. Great website!

Hi April,
This is a male Io Moth, Automeris io.
