Hi there –
A friend saw this moth today in Austin, Texas outside a coffee shop, and I was hoping you could help me identify what sort of moth it was.

This impressive Cecropia Moth is a male as evidenced by his very feathery antennae. We thought a Texas sighting was a bit unusual as we think of the Cecropia as being an eastern species, but BugGuide indicates that Texas is the western end of the range.
Awesome!! Thank you for the feedback Daniel 🙂
