Can you identify this moth. It was approx 6″ across. I took this pic at approx 5:45am in July in Exeter RI. On the sidewalk at a Starbucks
Signature: Dorne

Cecropia Moth

Dear Dorne,
This gorgeous moth is a Cecropia Moth, and even though it is in the same Giant Silkmoth family Saturniidae as a Luna Moth, once a person can compare the two, it is highly unlikely to confuse them.

Dear Daniel,
Thank you so much for your prompt response. This is a beautiful moth!  I am going to do some reading up on it.
