Tolype Velleda

September 21, 2006

[ad#Adsense: Horiz 468]

Another moth and not to be confused with the huge moth that was on our porch in May of this year. Mike and I were headed to lunch at Lunkerz Deli and Mike spotted this fella on the porch.

Hairy mothLarge Tolype – Tolype velleda

I had to do some extensive searching of “the Internets” to find out what type of moth this was, and it is called a Large Tolype. Its genus and species is Tolype velleda or “veiled moth”. Very fitting. More information can be found at the Bug Guide.
