Redneck Moth Common name just for fun. There is a distinctive bright red line between its hairy head and thorax, thus the &quot;redneck&quot;. Wings are creamy brown, Legs and antennas are black, and so are the dotted patterns. There can be pattern morphs in this species. It has less black spots on the lower streak on its wings than other moths of the same species.<br />
