Big Shell Moth

Found this big moth around 5:30 am when I stopped to get gas on my way to surf the other day.

Shell Moth

It's body was really nice and plump.

I did a little internet research to figure out what kind of moth it is. I think it's a Ceanothus Silk Moth.

Or maybe Shellothus Oil Silk Moth?

I remember Bob Wagner told he once saw a beautiful luna moth while he was getting gas one night at Howard and 25th St. Maybe big pretty moths like to hang out at gas stations?
