Columbia Silk Moth with Damaged Wing

This is Hyalophora columbia, the Columbia silk moth. Found in Burleigh County, North Dakota. It's similar to a cecropia moth, and is in the same genus, but based on color and pattern, this is definitely not a cecropia. See notes in photo for identification marks.
