An Unusual Moth: 07 September 2007

This colorful moth was drawn to my porchlight last night.

Update: Paul DeCelles has identified this beauty as a Tiger Moth.

Hi Ron,

Your moth is called a tiger moth. Here is a Wiki link-mainly about European tiger moths but the information is basically the same for ours. Note the larval pictures-hairy little beasties but you have probably seen the larvae.
