Ceanothus silkmoth
Hyalophora euryalus

Observation date: March 16, 2017
Submitted by: jperisho
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: She was observed laying eggs on pavement; there are willows, alders, mountain mohagany, and ceanothus in the general vicinity. She has now been in the spot for days, so we suspect this was her last stop and maybe she ran out of steam to lay her last eggs on vegetation. Weather was clear, and has been unusually warm.
