I took some digital photos of a moth in Prince George, British Columbia, Canada. I haven’t been able to find a picture on the internet that can tell me which moth it is. The blue beam in the picture is 4″ high by 1-5/8″ wide. That makes the moth about 2-1/4″ tall as it sit (which is about 4-1/2″ of wingspan). There are 4 eggs laid beside this moth, they are pretty close to the size of a BB. Please let me know if you can identify it. Thank you,
It looks to me like you have a female Columbia Silk Moth, Hyalophora columbia, a smaller and drabber relative of the Cecropia Moth. The Columbia Silk Moth is similar to the Cecropia, but lacking a red band in the hind wing. It is found in forested regions of Canada and New England.
