Adults fly from May to Sept throughout Eastern north America.

The species name...'grata' means 'acceptable' in Latin. A beautiful little moth about an inch long.

Great pictures! We found two different ones in two days at our home in the country in Indiana. One was much larger than the other.

I found this gorgeous creature on my porch after midnight last night. We are located 17 miles up the Connecticut River from Long Island Sound within the CT. River Valley, along its eastern side in a very rural area.

Upon further inspection I believe that the moth I found (Texas region) is Eudryas unio, Pearly Wood Nymph. It is a bit difficult to tell with out a hand lens to get a close enough look at the wing margins.
