Ceanothus silkmoth
Hyalophora euryalus

Observation date: May 22, 2019
Submitted by: Gunkers
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I don't know much about moths, really, but this one flew into my home. (I assume to escape my cat who, thankfully, didn't harm it!) It had a bit of a sticky substance on its wing (sap? I'm unsure) so I hope it got on alright after putting it on the lilac tree in the back yard.
Status: Resident

Coordinator notes: An interesting location for this species - it's in an area where euryalus and gloveri may meet and hybridize. This individual certainly as some aspects of gloveri.
