    Check out the polyphemus moth/ giant silk moth (Antheraea polyphemus) and see if you have a match. Best wishes! http://entnemdept.ufl.edu/creatures/MISC/MOTHS/polyphemus_moth.htm

    This looks like a Polyphemus moth to me, see – http://bugguide.net/node/view/1079453 You should browse all the photos at this site using keyword Saturniidae, to see if you find a better match Jack Scholl (jpscholl@gmail.com)
