I saw this beautiful moth in Los Gatos, California yesterday. After doing a little bit of research trying to identify the type of moth that I saw, I kept coming across information that the cecropia moth isn’t found in California. I was wondering what you thought of this or if I am correct in identifying this moth.
Unlike the Cecropia Moth, the closely related Ceanothus Silkmoth, Hyalophora euryalus, is indigenous to Southern California.
