Your letter to the bugman: I found this moth on the front steps of my house I think that it is a IO moth
How you want your letter signed: I do not care
This is a male Io Moth and your request was perfectly timed as we just finished posting an image of a sexually dimorphic, brown, female Io Moth. The overall color of males is yellow while the upper wings of the female Io Moth is brown. Both female and male Io Moths have distinctive eyespots on the underwings.
