Submitted by: Jill O.
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: this moth was spotted attached to side of house at 05:30 AM on a brisk morning in Hansville Wa. I took a picture of it in the morning, and when I returned in the evening tonight around 5;30PM it was on driveway. colorings seemed to have changed, the moth seemed to struggle to move, not flying, looked like a very hairy spider with beautiful wings. I have cedar, birch, and fir, and fruit trees in yard... it was closest to the cedar tree.
