    Hello all,

    Here is a little moth I photographed in my garden (Quebec, near Vermont) in August.

    I think it is within the Eberidae family.

    Any idea about his genus/species?

    Thanks again,

    Michel

    Maybe Eileen, but if so, only with the help of Google. What on earth did we do before Google? We went to libraries I suppose ;)

    Can anyone tell me what kind of moth this is? I thought maybe a Sphinx Moth but I can not find one that is similar. This one has a pink body and pink under wings. The pattern on the top of the wings is light pink and very intricate. Thanks moth.jpg

    It looks like a Garden Tiger moth (Arctia caja) to me. :)
