Speckled Footman Moth

Dear SMG,
We originally posted an image of Utetheisa pulchella, a Speckled Footman Moth, in 2006, but alas, the image does not currently show live.  It is pictured on this Israeli site and according to Lepidoptera and their Ecology:  “
Utetheisa pulchella inhabits mainly coastal dunes, rocky areas, dry slopes and other warm, gappy vegetated habitats.”

Location: Israel
