What moth is this?
Signature: Tory

Tolype

Hi Tory,
Please excuse our very tardy response.  This moth is a member of the Tent Caterpillar and Lappet Moth family Lasiocampidae, and it is in the genus
Tolype.  The species are rather difficult to distinguish from one another, and BugGuide has some helpful information.
