404700 – 7698 – Malacosoma disstria, Forest Tent Caterpillar Moth

Heavily processed to get the color on the moth right (the color of the background is from the mercury vapor lamp shining on the opposite side of the sheet). The band across the middle can be dark (like this one) or much lighter. First time I've seen this species; common, but not as abundant as the East ern. Will have to keep an eye out for the cats in spring at this site.
