This big beauty was hanging on the wall outside my apartment, in El Granada (Half Moon Bay) California. Is this species native to the coastal SF Bay Area?
Your beautiful moth is a Ceanothus Silkmoth, Hyalophora euryalus, and judging by the antennae, he is a male. It is native to your area. You can find additional information on BugGuide.
