    Hello all,

    Here is a little male moth I photographed last July 6th, 2010 in Quebec, Canada (near Vermont, USA). I think it is a Noctuidae but I'm not sure...

    Can somebody help me with its identification (family, genus, species)?

    Thanks again,

    I think I found it:

    Unicorn caterpillar (Schizura unicornis) from the Notodontidae family. Can you please confirm?

    Thanks,

    Michel

    Personally I can not verify what it is but you can check out the photos and information at http://www.butterfliesandmoths.org/sigh ... ils/546043

    You could also submit the photos information to them, it appears that a sighting in your location has not been reported yet. They have experts who can verify it's identity and they will add the information to their database.
