The agreeable tiger moth is one of three species of white tiger moth which are common in the United States. It has pronounced black eyes, white abdomen, and orange "bib" which set it apart from its cousin the Virginia tiger moth. Like its cousin, it tents its wings when at rest.
It was described by Francis Walker in 1855. It is found in the United States, Canada, and possibly India.
