Carpenterworm Moth
Prionoxystus robiniae

Observation date: June 21, 2018
Submitted by: ennamn
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: Woke to find the moth on the screen door. It moved very little all day, though it got knocked down onto the porch at around noon. It's about 2" long; I can't tell the wingspan because it hasn't unfolded them. Day has been warm (80s) & sunny.
Status: Resident
