Whats that Bug ?
December 4, 2009
I took this picture of the bug in my backyard.. I tried to identify it.. but could not.
Valdosta, Georgia USA
These are mating Polka Dot Wasp Moths, and they are quite common in Florida and Texas as well as some other southern states. The caterpillars feed on the leaves of oleander, so there must be a source of larval food in or near you backyard.
