Apantesis phalerata

Edgewood, MD (Harford County), 18 May 2017

These Moths are not rare around here, but they are just beautiful. With these, and other Moths that have a striking hindwing, it always pays to slightly harass them before you're done shooting pictures. The idea of this bold hindwing is supposedly to display to would-be predators that it may be dangerous or poisonous to eat them. I also ID these as "likely" because there really is confusion and lack of consensus about specifically identifying any four of the species in this genus in N.A. Some say it is not possible without dissection, while many are identifying them to species. So "likely" is as good as I'm going to do. Mostly, I just really enjoy these beautiful Moths.

I was thrilled to find this tiger moth come in to the lights a couple of nights ago. It is one of the less spectacular of the tigers, but still it was my first and very cool none the less.

Very closely related and difficult to tell from the Harnessed Tiger Moth, which I've posted a photo of before, this was another common species two nights ago. At least four or five of them were fluttering around the black light, but this one sat on the table for a bit.

Taken in my Oviedo,Florida backyard.
