ceanothus silk moth
This can’t be a Ceanothus as for I live in Ontario Canada, away from it suggested territory. But it doesn’t look like a Spice Bush either. Please help. To pretty to keep, so after the picture I released him. Love your site.

You are on the right track, but you posed your question before looking at other members in the same genus. This is a Cecropia Moth, Hyalophora cecropia.
