Our 2023 fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America online and free. Your support is vital to the project. Please make a recurring or one-time donation to sustain this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Observation notes: I noticed this thing crawling on my arm in my parked car off I-26 in SC on the way home from Isle of Palms (near Charleston) . I felt a sting and looked down and immediately freaked out and flung it off me ( I have a bad insect phobia). It landed on the dashboard where I took a couple pics then used a notepad to remove it from my car and took the other pic. This has caused me to have nightmares. I have no idea how it got in my car, I'm assuming it came from the trees around the house we rented at the beach
