We saw this beautiful bug on a couple of cool mornings in a driveway near where we live and cannot find it listed on your website. Can you help us?

Polkadot Wasp Moth

Hi Jack and Diane,
This is a Polkadot Wasp Moth, and it is a common species in Florida.  We have numerous images on our Tiger Moth page.  The caterpillars feed on oleander.

Thank you so much, I went to that picture and that was it !!!
