Catocala unijuga – Once-married Underwing

Caterpillar foods: Populus spp. and willow

We found this moth by the side of the road on 9/10/2006  Bill Oehlke agrees that this is probably Catocala unijuga.

I gently pried its wings apart so we could see the bright colored hind wings, and Mike snapped the picture.
