Identification
Epimecis hortaria, Tulip-tree Beauty, is one of the larger grays of the southeast, with a forewing length of 21mm to 28mm. Though the pattern of the forewing is highly variable, the species is easily recognized by its scalloped hindwings and spread resting position. Most often, the forewings are held such that the angle formed between the head and both wingtips is about 130 degrees, whereas with most gray species this angle is 180 degrees.
