This photo was taken on 7/23/10 in Jamestown, RI. Haven’t been able to identify it.
This is a diurnal member of the Tiger Moth tribe known as the Orange Collared Scape Moth, Cisseps fulvicollis, and it is also called a Yellow Collared Scape Moth. BugGuide has a nice comprehensive page on this species. Your photo is very welcomed as we have not posted a new photo of this species since 2007.
