Goliathus Posted April 6, 2020 Report Share Posted April 6, 2020 Has anyone here heard anything lately regarding the existence of wild populations of the Ailanthus Silkmoth (Samia cynthia) in the United States? This species became naturalized in some parts of the eastern US following its introduction in the late 1800s as part of a domestic silk production plan that ultimately failed, but it's been many years since I've heard of anyone seeing one of these moths (outside of captive breeding) in this country.
