Ceanothus Silkmoth

Hi Matt,
Your visitor is a Ceanothus Silkmoth, Hyalophora euryalus, a California native that does not feed as an adult, but has a caterpillar that feeds on Ceanothus, or California lilac.  According to BugGuide, the larvae also feed on willow, so your property should be a natural habitat for the Ceanothus Silkmoth.
