Caption: The Regal Moth, Citheronia regalis, because of the feeding preference of its caterpillar, is also known as the Royal Walnut Moth. In addition to walnut, this moth's very large caterpillar feeds on hickory, sweet gum, butternut and hickory, the last responsible for the large caterpillar's common name of Hickory Horn Devil. The Regal Moth is a member of the giant silk moth family, Saturniidae. It is found throughout the eastern US and adjoining Canada but is more common southward. This specimen is perched on leaves of Pecan.
