Hi A. B. Henderson,
Ever since a person once submitted, around 2005, a photo describing the Rosy Maple Moth as looking like sherbet, we have wanted to call Dryocampa rubicunda a Sherbet Moth. We seem to have lost that email, but we have the memory. We are going to begin using the name Sherbet Moth.

I see these in Southern VA often in early Summer. What beauties!
I had similar to this last night at my house in Taylors SC. I go to Conway SC a lot wonder if they came home with me
