Our summer fundraiser has arrived, and we need your help!
We depend on donations to keep Butterflies and Moths of North America freely available. If everyone who uses this resource makes a donation, we could cover our ongoing costs, develop new features, upgrade the system, and maybe even remove those pesky ads. Please make a one-time or recurring donation to show your support for this valuable source of information. Thank you!
Coordinator notes: This looks like a variation of Eacles imperialis, a female. It could be E. oslari, but looks closer to nominate E. imperialis. D'Abrera includes E. oslari as a variation of E. imperialis in Saturniidae Mundi. Further reading on bugguide.net and other on-line sources puts this sighting under E. oslari because of locale, the difference between E, imperialis and E. oslari apparently being in their phemerones. The two species can look virtually identical. SAT
