LivanEscudero Unknown spotting

Yes they have a variety of patterns, though most Browns have white speckles or little lines mixed in. Look for the thick dark line coming up from the back corner of the eye. Of course dewlap in males is the best give away. This one is I think a female though with the diamond or chevron pattern down its back. Then there are ones with a copper reddish head also. Look at the third photo of this spotting http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/811...

Despite the differences you mentioned, the dark "spokes" pattern coming off of the eye (in particular the thick one at the back of the eye) seem to be a give away for A. sagrei. Of course the dewlap color would be the best identifier.

It's a Plume Moth, I bet from thetribe Pterophorini but I couldn't help you with more specific than that. http://bugguide.net/node/view/44051/bgpa...

Note in the reference page that there's a very similar species. The elongated body I see in your first pic is why I went with my suggestion. Not an expert though.

Beautiful photo and spotting. You can put butterflies and all insects under the Arthropod (dragonfly symbol) rather than "other" ( starfish symbol).

Looks like some species of Chicory, don't know which. Reminded me of this spotting of mine.

As Ashley said. Definitely a Tricolored. No white throat or underparts on a Little Blue.

Thanks dcslaugh. Personally, I think my underwater photos have a lot of room for improvement. I have a SeaLife camera that came with the underwater casing. I don't have any accessories like proper lights on it. So I'm limited to sunny shallow water. (This location was great). But, basically I just take lots of shots, delete most of them, and hope for the best. LOL.
