Rosy Maple Moth

Hi A. B. Henderson,
Ever since a person once submitted, around 2005, a photo describing the Rosy Maple Moth as looking like sherbet, we have wanted to call
Dryocampa rubicunda a Sherbet Moth.  We seem to have lost that email, but we have the memory.  We are going to begin using the name Sherbet Moth.
