Hi Daniel!
One of your previous bug queen’s of the day here. LoL. I was sent this photo of an extremely large brown moth and wondered if you would be so kind as to identify it. I thought it might be a type of silk moth, but, this is a first for me.

Dear Stephanie,
This is a Polyphemus Moth, and it appears to be a female that is full of eggs.
