Arctia caja Buchstein02.jpg

The garden tiger moth or great tiger moth (Arctia caja) is a moth of the family Erebidae. Arctia caja (Say it: ark-tee-uh KODGE-uh) is a northern species found in the US, Canada, and Europe. The moth prefers cold climates with temperate seasonality, as the larvae overwinter, and preferentially chooses host plants that produce pyrrolizidine alkaloids. However, garden tiger moths are generalists, and will pick many different plants to use as larval host plants.
