One of the finer day-flying moths. This is the Eight-spotted Forester, Alypia octomaculata (Hodges #9314). (Four spots on this side and four on the other I suppose.) The forewing spots often appear more yellowed than this. The abdomen on this one has been pulled up and is hidden in this view by the hindwing. The caterpillar feeds on the common Virginia Creeper vine, Parthenocissus inserta, and some Grapevines. For a huge collection of moth shots by Hodges number please see the wonderful website:

This is the caterpillar for the Eight-spotted Forester. Feeds on grape and Virginia Creeper. 

Thyris sepulchralis, the Mournful Thyris (Hodges #6077). It can be a very common nectarer in midsummer. Often mistaken for a butterfly which many of the day-flying moths can be. Nice upturned nose.

Not often seen in such pristine, newly emerged condition. Cyndi found this one near her home. Can't be any fresher. This is the Giant Leopard Moth, Hypercompe scribonia. More often seen as the cat and this one is the big black Wooly Bear caterpillar often seen crossing roads. The cat eats about anything it can find.
The same beast with the abdomen in view before the wings were unfurled. Shot in May of 2015. 

Hypsoropha monilis (Hodges #8527), the Large Necklace Moth. Feeds on Hickory.

An oh-my-God moth, Eudryas unio (Hodges #9299). Otherwise known as the Pearly Wood-Nymph. A Noctuid (Hodges #9299). It appears to be doing yoga. Or trying to hide. This is another animal that was attracted to Eric's Florida door light. Several of the Eudryas eat grapevine. 

Very pointy orange moth. Apparently Holomelina is the genus (close to Hodges #8121). Species not clear without a full view of the hindwings according to Eric at the Ohio Lep group.

Very distinct Geometer. Scopula limboundata (Hodges #7159). Ghost with a fringe. Apparently there is a form without the dark border that is the same species. Geometers in general are more distinctive as caterpillars. These cats are very elongate with many annulations. They eat blueberry, chokecherry, elm and several others. Most in the genus have a lateral flange the length of the cat. Scopula is one of the world's largest genera of Geometer with over 700 species on the planet. There are a half dozen species in the eastern US.

A moth in the genus Synanthedon which has an impressive little group of boring (as in penetrating) clearwings. This is in the section near the Dogwood Borer (Hodges #2549). So this bores something. I just don't know what. It was in a Cypress lakeside wetland in spring.
