Yellow-banded Wasp Moth

Syntomeida ipomoeae, the Yellow-banded Wasp Moth or Orange-banded Wasp Moth, is a moth in the Arctiidae family. It was described by Harris in 1839. It is found in Florida and Georgia. The wingspan is about 43 mm. The forewings are black with two to four small white discal spots. The hindwings are black with a white basal patch. There are alternating yellowish-orange and black bands on the abdomen. Adults have been recorded on wing from April to October. The larvae feed on Ipomoea species and possibly also other plants in the Convolvulaceae family. The larvae have an orange body with black tufts of hair.
