Hi Tessa,

Click on the thumbnail image on the tenth row, third one from the left.

To find out more about it, go here: http://www.ent.orst.edu/lepphoto/
Click on the search link and click on search by taxonomy.
Set family = Lymantriidae.
Set genus = Dasychira.
Then click on the Dasychira vagans thumnail.

Hope that's the one,
