Reversed Haploa Moth

Reversed Haploa Moth

The reversed haploa moth is identified by the orange head with black antennae; black eyes; the chocolate/black forewings with a white design OR white forewings; and simple white hind wings, though you will probably only notice the hind wings if you see the moth fly.

Like many other moths, Reversed Haploa can be found resting on low lying leaves.  Their coloring makes them stand out against the greenery, amplifying their aesthetic.  I was quite shocked by the beauty of this moth when I first saw it.  The wing design reminds me of an ethnic pattern.  What do you think of when you see this moth?

Reversed Haploa Moth is common throughout the midwest of USA.  Check out this distribution map if you want to know if they’ve been found in your area.
