Artist's Insight:

Common name: Virginian Tiger Moth, Latin Species name: Spilosoma virginica

Collected in Lac Bonin, Quebec on May 23, 2007

The Virginian Tiger Moth (Spilosoma virginica) is a member of the tiger moth family. 

Some tiger moths produce faintly audible clicking sounds under duress and these sounds, which have a large ultrasonic component, appear to be defensive in function and jam the hunting bat’s echolocation calls.

The Virginian Tiger Moth is found predominantly in eastern North America. 

This moth has a wingspread of 42 mm.
