Funny, I thought it looked familiar. I was hoping I hadn't posted it before.

The only thing I remember is something about dogwood...at least I think it has some kind of association to dogwood--that is where I found it.

Thanks, kchd. Looks right to me.

How cool is that!?! I was looking forward to seeing the adult, but, after reading this...

The io moth, Automeris io (Fabricius), is a colorful North American moth that has a short life span as an adult. Emerging at mid-day, mating takes place that evening.
(io moth - Automeris io (Fabricius)) ...it makes me wonder if I'd be lucky enough to see an adult.

That's not a Golden Digger Wasp. The GDW doesn't have a hairy thorax and it's longer.
