Pink-Legged Tiger Moth
Spilosoma latipennis

Observation date: June 05, 2012
Submitted by: sdhenry3
Specimen type: Photograph
Observation notes: I don't believe my photographs are worthy of the gallery but am more interested in knowing what type of moth this is as we've never seen on in persona before and were unable to find it online. It was quite enchanting. It showed up at night and was gone by morning.
