This wonderful creature, perched on an exterior 2″ wide door frame is, as of yet, to be identified.
It, along with a Luna moth, arrived for my father’s funeral. Dad was a WWII Atomic Veteran and stationed at Roswell. We decided this creature was not a human visitor. So, what is it?

Like the Luna Moth, this Spotted Apatelodes, Apatelodes torrefacta, is also a Giant Silkmoth, but from a different family. The Luna Moth is in the family Saturniidae and the Spotted Apatelodes is in the family Bombycidae. The pose when resting is quite distinctive.
