Tuliptree silkmoth
Callosamia angulifera

Observation date: June 14, 2019
Submitted by: Donna3186
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I found this on my driveway behind a planter that is directly below our garage light that we leave on at night. It is absolutely beautiful and very very large. It is windy today and its wings were blowing up and I am wondering if it is injured but I left it alone. Its breezy, cool and partly cloudy out. We do not have any spicebush plants but perhaps a neighbor does.
