Moth ID
I found this moth in my driveway, dead, and I have no idea what it is. For reference purposes, I live in Southern California. Could you possibly identify it for me? (:

Oh yes, I love IDing moths! :3 Thanks for including the location, that made this alot easier. There are a few large silk moths (family Saturniidae) that look similar in North America. This one is the Ceanothus Silkmoth (Hyalophora euryalus). It attains a wingspan of up to 12.7 cm, and the larvae feed on a varity of tree leaves (buckbush, willow, cherry, et al.). They’re only found in the western parts of North America, from BC to Baja California, Mex.
