Please identify this HUGE butterfly
April 12, 2010
Bugman, thanks for taking the time to read this and seeing if you can ID this HUGE butterfly (or moth) in my backyard. It is orange white, and truly beautiful. I’ve never seen such a big body before. So large, it could not fly away

Dear Dr. Pournaras,
This lovely creature is a Cecropia Moth, a species found in the eastern portion of North America.
