Halysidota tessellaris, 24 May 2020

Halysidota tessellaris, the Banded tussock moth;
Volusia county, Florida (24 May 2020).

Seems I’m in a bit of a mothman mood right now. Fair enough! This is a Banded tussock moth, one of the more common species in my neck of the woods, photographed a few years back. We get plenty of these in Ormond Beach, Florida. Always a welcome sight. This particular individual was fairly roughed up. We’ll see some super clean ones later down the Floridensis pipeline.
