What kind of moth
June 14, 2010
This moth hung upside down in a tree next to my home all day. What is he and why was he hanging upside down???
We cannot say for certain why this Polyphemus Moth, Antheraea polyphemus, is hanging upside-down, except perhaps it was more comfortable. We are setting your letter and photo to go live next week since we will be out of the office for a week and we want to maintain a schedule of daily updates.
