Tolype species

Dear Thomas,
This is a Lappet Moth in the genus
Tolype, but we are uncertain of the species.  According to BugGuide:  ” there is considerable variation among individuals and between the sexes of all Tolype species, which complicates identification of species based on color.”

Thank you very much for your research. Have a wonderful day!
Best,
Thomas

Location: Fort Collins, Colorado
