Rosy Maple Moth [Dryocampa rubicunda]

I had only seen this moth species once before and that was in the early 2000's. Yesterday we had stopped at a gas station and there were several Rosy Maple Moths on the outside wall of the building. A welcomed sighting of a very colourful moth.

Hello. I have pictures of a moth that I saw that looks very similar to your moth No. 2 picture. I have identified mine as a Tulip Tree Beauty moth (Epimecis Hortaria). I'm almost positive that is what yours is as well.

I have pictures of the one you have labeled as No. 8 as well. This one is a White Slant-line moth (Tetracis cachexiata).
