Whats This Bug
Hi,
I live in southeastern Ohio. Could you tell me what this beautiful moth / butterfly is? I found it in the shade next to the door of my house. At first I thought it was a leaf, then I noticed it was actually an insect. I am very curious. Thank you,
Jennifer

Hi Jennifer,
This little beauty is a Rose Hooktip Moth, Oreta rosea. It is the only member of its genus in North America. BugGuide has some excellent examples of the color variations of this species.
