Feralia jocosa - "The Joker" Mossy Sallow Moths. A very variable species.
These beauties are among the first moths that arrive at our lights each spring. The females will lay eggs if held for one night and soon we will be raising their equally stunning caterpillars in the lab. We featured this species as a "Caterpillar of the Week" some time ago, but did not have images of the adults at that time. Enjoy!
