Emerald Geometer Moth (Dichorda illustraria)

According to the Kaufman Field Guide to Insects of North America, Geometer moths "make up one of our largest moth families, with more than 1,400 species in the U.S. and Canada." Larval hosts include Laurel Sumac (Malosma laurina), Skunkbush (Rhus trilobata) and gooseberries (Ribes sp.)
