American Moon Moth Resin Earrings -- Actias luna

A common moth in Eastern North America.  Luna moths have successive broods, and caterpillars feed on a variety of trees including Sweetgum and Walnut.

The last brood overwinters as a cocoon, either attached to a twig or most commonly in the leaf litter.  Wandering caterpillars looking to cocoon for the winter can sometimes be found off their host plants in fall, and appear orangish green.

A classic and beautiful member of the moon moth family.
