Anisota senatoria I&#039;m having a hard time determining the species of this moth. The size and overall color suggests Anisota stigma, but apparently that species doesn&#039;t occur in CT. So, this may be Anisota senatoria instead.<br />

  1. Crazy detail on this one, nice! Posted 2 years ago
    1. Thanks! It was a big, fuzzy moth that kept crawling all over me. I had to keep taking it off, haha. Posted 2 years ago
  2. Aaaw..such a cutie, where is one of its antennae??..anyway, they have a short life so I hope he/she was just able to pass the genes to the offspring! :-) Posted 2 years ago
    1. Part of the right antennae is buried in its fur, but you're right -- it looks like part of it is missing. Maybe it lost part of the antenna when it lost its forehead scales. ;P Posted 2 years ago
      1. They don't care much about their appearance at that point in life! :-D Posted 2 years ago
