Pink-Legged Tiger Moth
Spilosoma latipennis

Observation date: June 26, 2020
Submitted by: Chet Gottfried
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I first came across the female tiger moth, who was unfortunately in deep shade. Several minutes later, while I was trying to photograph her from different angles, a male pink-legged tiger moth came along (but they didn't hit it off with one another).
