Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: Observed in Thuja-Tsuga forest near creek drainage, elevation 2660 feet +/- 40 feet. It was clinging to the pant leg of a member of our party, and was very docile, resting on my finger for at least 5 minutes while we examined it. The thorax and abdomen were very thick, while the head was small. In family Saturniidae?
