Gypsy Moth. Deceased
Mindy Addis


Dear Mindy, thank you for contacting us re your catch. Luckily, this is not a Gypsy moth, but rather a native Pandora moth. This year, is a big year for this native species. The caterpillars of the Pandora moth feed on the first year growth of our Douglas firs. Thank you, Helmuth Rogg
