Banded Tussock Moth (Halysidota sp) 8"x10" Print

I'm so excited to share this drawing of a Sycamore Tussock Moth (Halysidota harrisii), or Banded Tussock Moth (Halysidota tessellaris)! FYI, the only way to differentiate adults of the two species is to dissect the genitalia and examine them under a microscope. As for me, I just snapped some pics of one that I found in my neighborhood about 10 years ago and stumbled upon those photos again recently. Not too scientific, but I hadn't drawn an insect in a long time and this one called to me! Last year my daughter and I found a caterpillar of H. tessellaris (I believe) and I'm patiently awaiting its emergence from its cocooned winter slumber outside. 


The standard 8"x10" size is easily matted into an 11"x14" mat and frame. A great size for any room! (Frame is not included, shown for demonstration/inspiration purposes only.)


The print will come to you in a protective plastic sleeve with a hard backing.
