Parasemia plantaginis Moth
Family Tiger Moths

striped moth

beautiful moth
I found this beautiful moth lounging at 8700 feet in the shade below the path around Silver Lake at
Brighton, Utah.   I wish I could have gotten closer to take a better photo but the area it was resting
in was
inaccessible (
maybe next time)These do come in varying colors of  black, white and orange and even
the wing design differs. 
Maybe there are subspecies.  I have no answer.  If you do a search for
them on the web, you will see the differences.  © Carol Davis, 7-13-2008
