This moth showed up this morning and stayed all day in the same location. I am just wondering what kind it is. It resembles an elephant to me. What’s your thoughts?

Hi Wayne,
Your moth is a Spotted Apatelodes, and we agree that its curved abdomen does resemble the trunk of an elephant.  Could you please provide a more specific location?
