Our Polyphemus Moth Emerges

Entomologist Dr. Art Evans and WCVE Public Radio producer Steve Clark discuss the emergence of a polyphemus moth from a cocoon found just outside the radio station by WCVE’s Shawn Evans.

Shawn and another fellow employee, Derrick Starr not only captured an image of the freshly emerged moth, but also that of its male suitor and the cocoon from which the female emerged.
