Leaf Looking Bug or Moth
June 10, 2010
I saw this bug on the outside of my nephew’s house in Kearney, Missouri. I’ve looked in books and online but can’t figure it out. Is it a moth? A leafhopper?

Spiny Oak Slug Moth

Hi Georgia,
We believe this is a Spiny Oak Slug Moth, Euclea delphinii, which is featured on BugGuide, but it might also be a closely related species in the same genus.  We often get identification requests for the Spiny Oak Slug Caterpillar, but rarely the adult moth.
