Hi, I took this picture of a moth in State College, PA. Wondering what kind it is. Thanks!
We started getting images of Cecropia Moths, Hyalophora cecropia, from various locations in the past month, beginning with southern sightings. According to BugGuide: “Populations of this species can be found across most of continental North America east of the Rocky Mountains. Cecropia moths are recorded from the Maritime Prov. of Canada (Nova Scotia & PEI) south to central Florida and west across the Eastern Plains & e. Rockies.”
