Poodle Moth

    Prev Next

    It is called Muslin Moth. I couldn't see his neck till I let him climb on my finger.
    When I first examined the photograph it reminded me of a little poodle.
    He looks like he's going to start barking and wagging something any minute.
    Thanks to apifera91 for the ID.

    Since uploading this shot I have been told this is actually Spilosoma virginica - Virginian Tiger Moth. Perhaps I should just stick with Poodle Moth. Here are some links from bugguide: bugguide.net/node/view/498/bgimage
    bugguide.net/node/view/994443#1746140

    By the way there is a moth in Venezuela that is actually called the poodle moth. See link: cosmiclog.nbcnews.com/_news/2012/08/27/13510167-bizarre-p... I now realize that it is because of this story of the real poodle moth and a link in that article to my shot that there were so many views of my photo called poodle moth.
