This little guy was hanging out neat a luna moth (picture included). He is only an inch and a half long or so, and has bright red wings and a black body with white polka dots. He’s not in my field guide, so I’m hoping you can help. I’m building up a collection of local wildlife photography.

Dear Brian,
Your unidentified moth is a Spotted Oleander Moth,
Empyreuma affinis, and you can find many photos in our archive as well as on BugGuide.  There is also an extensive profile on Featured Creatures.
