    Hairy-legged moth :P

    Found this outside, lol...

    The wings are pretty cool as far as colors go ( you can't see the underwings in these shots, but they're orange), but the forelegs are covered in fuzz.

    Any entomologist out there wish to ID it?

    leaning towards something in the family lymantridae. Hard to say. Family does not exist in Hawaii. So no specimens for me to compare with.

    Also could be this noctuid moth:

    leaning more towards the second based on antennal morphology

    Mach: Wow, pretty good ID'ing there It indeed looks like Eudryas grata. Thanks for the help!

    Devon: LOL. However, (s)he's got quite the pudgy belly on the underside Appearances can be deceiving.

    SIG: ... No comment.
