Promethea Moth

July 6, 2014
Female Promethea Moth (deceased)

This moth was dead on one of the campground roads. It's a Promethea Moth (Callosamia promethea), a female (the male is apparently strikingly darker) and huge - wings cover my open hand. I hope it fulfilled its mission... Wentworth NH, 6/27/2014.
