moth w/blue spots, brown white
September 4, 2009
My friend travels all over colorado and he put this photo up on Facebook of this moth… I haven’t been able to id it… do you know what kind it is?
This is a Great Tiger Moth, Arctia caja. Just a few days ago we posted another individual and since BugGuide indicates it is: “uncommon to rare in North America; European numbers have been declining in recent years” it is hopeful that we are receiving images of this lovely moth that is found in both Europe and the New World.
