Saw this outside tonight on the bushes. I initially thought it was a moth, but didn’t see the feathery antenna that I though moths have. Can you help identify it?
Not all moths have feathery antennae, but you can be assured that no butterflies have feathery antennae. This is a Clymene Moth, Haploa clymene, and it is classified as one of the Tiger Moths.
