Why are you reporting this puzzle?

Latin American and Caribbean folklore associates this moth with death or misfortune, especially if found in one's house. This one was in my house in 2014 and I'm not dead yet. I suspect I will be one day so I guess the folklore is true.

A beautiful moth. And a reminder of a vintage skirt I saw a couple of years ago. The skirt was supposed to bring good fortune to the wearer.


Yes, thanks Bill. Saw many cecropias when I lived in Iowa. As a kid I would take any cocoons I found home and place them in little screened boxes as protection from spiders and squirrels. Another one I occasionally saw in Iowa is the luna moth. Nearly monochromatic but still quite stunning. And thanks to all for your comments and interest.


Wow, Bill, thanks for posting that site. She is really a beautiful moth, equally as beautiful as the Black Witch Moth.


She's beautiful, hermitish! I've never seen a Black Witch Moth. The most stunning moth I've ever seen is the cecropia, which used to appear in the summers when I lived in western Colorado. I have not seen one in many years.


Thanks for this lovely moth. I wish we had them here in Reno, NV.
