Hello, this moth has been hanging around my back door this evening. Normally I can easily identify the strange giant moths on my door from pictures you have posted, but I’m not sure about this one. It is a greenish-brown sort of camouflage color. I tried to get as good of pictures as possible, but it was hard to get shots of its underbelly. Thanks!
Your identification of this Imperial Moth is absolutely correct. She is a female. Males have more purple markings on the wings.
