Description: Male adults, note the different eye sizes for the nun moth (left) and the gypsy moth (right). The small size of the nun moth is probably the result of crowding during the outbreak.
Female over egg mass. Empty pupae of nun moth and two empty pupae of gypsy moth, below, right of female. Surface of nun moth pupae is shiny with white-yellow long bristles.
