Hi! I found these guys hanging out on my front window this morning. I know the one is a Rosy Maple moth, but I’m not sure about the other. I’ve been browsing photos of Promethea and Tulip Tree moths, but I can’t figure out how to tell them apart. What is she?

Hi April,
Both the Promethea Moth and the Tuliptree Silkmoth are in the same genus, so they look similar, but we believe this is a female Tuliptree Silkmoth which is pictured on BugGuide.
