I found this little moth on my mom’s front porch this June and I was really curious as to what it was. It was so furry it reminded me of a tiny dog or a bear. I looked around on google a bit and it looks similar to the Stinging rose caterpillar moth, except with much less green.
If you know what this moth might be any info would be appreciated! Thanks!

Hi Jessica,
Congratulations on getting the family correct for your Spiny Oak Slug Moth,
Euclea delphinii, a highly variable species that is pictured on BugGuide demonstrating the varying amount of green that can be present.  The Spiny Oak Slug Moth is pictured along side the Stinging Rose Caterpillar Moth on the Moth Photographers Group website.
