(Youngstown, Ohio USA) Wings are gray with orange stripes and off white spots.
Head and body is orange and furry.
Found at the front door of our business in a strip plaza.
You are quite fortunate to find a Regal or Royal Walnut Moth. This is one of the large silk moths in the family Saturnidae. The caterpillars are called Hickory Horned devils.
These moths are found in the eastern United States: New York to Florida, west to Texas and Nebraska and more common in the southern areas, more rare in the northern range…so in NE OH you are in the northern range!
Larvae feed on leaves of ash, butternut, cotton, gum, hickory, lilac, pecan, persimmon, sumac, sycamore, walnut.
Adults do not feed. Adults of this family are known to come to those bright lights of shopping centers and gas stations at night.
I don’t see big feathery antenna so that may be a female…hope it finds its way back to the trees to lay eggs.
Thanks for the great photo with coin for size and the description where it was found. All information is so helpful for ID….tho this was an easy one!
