|Comment||THATS IT!!! What a great site! I was hoping my description was good enough to elicit and answer and it was. Im so excited. I cant wait to see my moth again and really get a good look at it. I was afraid to get too close for fear of getting stung or bitten. Your answer was so quick and you sent me a link to a sight to see examples of the insect and other varieties of the same. I will use this sight again and again. Thank you again, so much, for the information.|

I answer insect and spider identification questions ONLY. Attach images if possible. No "what bit me?", "what do I feed this bug in captivity?", or science fair project questions please. NO TECHNICAL QUESTIONS ABOUT INSECT PHYSIOLOGY.
