Dryocampa rubicunda, 09 April 2014

Dryocampa rubicunda, the Rosy maple moth;
Flagler county, Florida (09 April 2014).

Rosy maple moths are quite amazing. Though you wouldn’t know it from their pale green caterpillar form, Rosy maple moths are bright yellow with pink accents in their adult form. They’re also wicked furry. One of my favorite species to come across at night. Rosy maple moths range throughout most of the eastern half of the United States — and even a bit into southern Canada.
