Hello, Apatelodes!

I’m fluffy!

Unless my Bug-Guide-fu fails me, this is Apatelodes torrefacta. He will turn into a really freaky looking moth, the Spotted Apatelodes moth (seriously, look that thing up! They’re freaky!)

He’s a new one for the yard list, and a weirdly handsome little devil.

  1. Looked it up. Seems like your typical moth in full on treebark camouflage to me. Probably means it’s delicious to birds.
    Jerusalem crickets (Stenopelmatus species), now Those meet my standards of freaky looking.
