    Hello all,

    Here is another little moth photographied in Sherbrooke, Canada (near Vermont, USA) last 2009, July 8th.

    Any idea about the family/genus/species?

    Thank you very much for your always so appreciated help!

    Michel

    Your moth looks like a White Satin Moth/Leucoma salicis. :-D

    Hello Eileen,

    Thank you very much for your help.

    Finally it is the Yellow Woolybear (referencing to the yellow Caterpillar) (Spilosoma virginica) from the Erebidae family.

    Cheers.

    Michel
