Ceanothus Silk Moth, Hyalophora euryalus, one of the Saturnid Moths
Ceanothus Silk Moth found North of Fort Bragg, California on the Pacific Ocean on 3/24/2006. This beautiful creature enthralled us, and stayed in this position all night and all day… Until the owner claimed her shoe. The bottom of the lower wings look like children holding hands and dancing! Thank you for your wonderful and educational site!
Thanks for sending us your wonderful image of a properly identified Ceanothus Silk Moth.
