Southern Cyan Tiger Moth

Macrocneme chrysitis


Apparently a wasp-mimic, to me it looked like an orchid-bee at first glance. It had a wingspan around 3cm, metallic green/blue with white on the joints and 'feet' of 3rd pair of legs; also two white dots between thorax and abdomen.


Lowland swap/wetland area with some forest in Tabasco, Mexico. Spotted in Yumká.
