Your letter to the bugman: Hey what kind of moth is this? Its big and furty with fern-like antenea?
How you want your letter signed: Thank you
This is a Giant Silkmoth in the genus Hyalophora, and we are relatively certain that it is the Ceanothus Silkmoth because of the BugGuide description: “discal spot on hindwing shaped like an elongated comma pointing toward outer margin, sometimes breaking PM line.” We believe because of the bushy antennae that your individual is a male.
