I found this moth under one of the leaves of my White Sapote tree - it has an unusual pattern. Does anyone know what species it is?

Hi Dwain,

That is a great picture of a beautiful moth. It might be an Ethmia, Yponomeuta, or
Eustixia species moth. Also, a chance of being a type of "Tiger moth", from the Arctiidae family.

It looks like your location might be "Outside United States", which would make identification more difficult, due to unfamiliar moths in other areas.

Thank you for posting your picture. I hope this information is of help to you.
