What is it?

Mom captured these photos.
we would like to know what kind of moth is this?
We never seen this in our area before.
So we are asking what is it and where did it come from.

By the looks of it, it appears to be a Ctenucha Rubroscapus Moth

This moth is found in wet meadows along the West Coast in California, Oregon and Washington. It's in the family Arctiidea and the species is Ctenucha rubroscarpus. I don't know that it has a common name.

I suggest you visit this site, for this moth, which is a red shouldered ctenucha rubroscapus. They have a map for verified western coastal locations. butterfliesandmoths.org
