Polka Dot Wasp Moth?
I took this picture this morning 1-18-08 in my yard in Gainesville, FL. When I got to your page the bug of the month, the Polka Dot Wasp Moth, looked quite similar. Is it the same? btw…LOVE the site!!!!
You are absolutely correct. The Polka-Dot Wasp Moth, Syntomeida epilais, is also called the Oleader Moth. Choosing our Bug of the Month is always a dicey operation. We were beginning to doubt that we had made the right choice this month since your letter is the first identification request/confirmation we have received.
