Identified-beautiful white and black moth
May 1, 2010
I submited this photo yesterday, but was able to futher research it myself. I discovered that it is (I believe) a Salt Marsh Moth. I am delighted to finally know what this beauty is called. However, I still prefer the name given to it by my daughter: The Dalmation Moth. Best Wishes,
WE agree that you have correctly identified this Tiger Moth as a Salt Marsh Moth, Estigmene acrea, a species well represented on BugGuide.
