Project Noah is a tool to explore and document wildlife and a platform to harness the power of citizen scientists everywhere.
I agree Agnes :-)
Our wing and abdomen patterns are the same Noel. What differs is that mine has solid black thorax while yours has 2 stripes. And the plot thickens...
Crowd learning... Sounds good! ;-)...
Bayucca, how about my spotting at http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/148.... Is this Nigriceps? I had doubts upon reading your comments so I just indicated the "family" under notes. Thanks!
@ Leana: That's great news!@Bayucca: That's part of the beauty of PN ---" Crowd Learning " at its best :-)
No reason for apologize. You should know in the meanwhile that I am sometimes a little bit "fussy" about IDs. But looking at all the wrong Amatas on the web, I think it is also a chance for us to solve this issue. And PN is best platform for doing that! Sorry that I am not much of a help until know but telling you it is not Nigriceps.
Agnes is going to have a masters in Entomology soon :)
No problem Leana :-) Thanks!
Bayucca is right Noel... Sorry for the wrong ID. Agnes and I are discussing about this a while ago :)
Thanks bayucca for the assist.
This is not Amata nigriceps. Spots are different, also the colors of the head. Here is a trusted picture of Amata nigriceps:http://lepbarcoding.org/australia/specie...http://www.flickr.com/photos/mgg310/6330...
Thanks Leana for the ID!
