Cecropia Moth

Hello Moth lovers,

I need a little help with my cecropia moths. These two hatched within hours of each others. I anticipated Cecropias out of these cocoons but was very surprised to see different moths. One large male Cecropia for sure but the female is so very small and much more brown than i thought. Do i have 2 cecropias ?

This has the markings of a female Promethea.

She looks like a promethea moth to me, too - beautiful!

Did you order these cocoons?
