I found what looks to be some type of moth a few years ago on vacation in Maryland. I was hoping you could help me identify it!

Dear Anonymous,
This is a Southern Flannel Moth or Puss Moth,
Megalopyge opercularis, and though your image is several years old, your identification request is very timely because a Puss Moth Caterpillar or Asp from Ecuador is our 20,000th posting, and yours is our 20,001st.  Read more about the Puss Moth on BugGuide.
