CLOSED: Which moth?

Coast range of, OR(Zone 8b)

Which one is it? It hung out on the side of my house for a couple of days, then disappeared.

He's beautiful!
The closest I could come to his markings is a Gypsy Moth, but he's not.
I'm curious now.

Erie, MI(Zone 6a)

It is a male Polyphemus moth (Antheraea polyphemus)... I have website on them... if you'd like more information, you can visit this website:

www.geocities.com/mothman15 and then click on the Polyphemus section.... or go directly to it through this link:

Hope that helps!
God bless,
