This moth is common in KY but uncommon elsewhere.

Host Plant: It's unrecorded but probably uses a wide variety of plants.

Seems that someone in KY would have recorded it by now.

I found this moth in my garden last summer and had no idea what it was. I think they are beautiful, but have no ideas about their likes or dislikes

Took me a long time to discover this guy's name - with the help of another photographer friend, we found it. Most sites would not locate him in North Carolina. He was only around for one day, have not seen him again.
