Eyed Tiger Moth

Dear Brent,
This beautiful moth,
Hypercompe scribonia, has two common names that reference to giant cats.  Though Giant Leopard Moth is the more commonly used name, we prefer Eyed Tiger Moth as it is an additional reference to the tribe to which it belongs, Arctiini, the Tiger Moths.

Thanks Again Very Much Daniel! Appreciate your help again. Was having trouble uploading images I have several more I will try to send again. Thanks Again!

Location: Seminole, Florida
