Ailanthus webworm moth on Celosia

13 08 2012

Ailanthus webworm moth (Atteva aurea) is a type of ermine moth. I photographed this one on a Celosia (Cockscomb) flower at Meadowlark Botanical Gardens. These flowers are commonly known as woolflowers, but if the flower heads are crested, they are called cockscombs.
