I found this amazing moth in the rain in a parking lot (last picture) and brought him home to get dry and to take pictures of him before letting him go in a safe place. It was metallic blue with bright yellow-orange antennae and looks very much like a spider wasp. Family Erebidae, Arctiinae.
A Mexican Wheel Bug!! So exciting. I haven't ever seen this one before. It's thoracic "Wheel" is small and the tips rounded into little balls. The membranous part of the wings is dark. It was 3 cm long and both the male and the female were on the same bush. Family Reduviidae, Subfamily Harpactocorinae.
Can you guess who I am? This is the male of the Copaxa Moth, and an exceptionally orange colored one. They are usually more yellow in color. This Silkworm moth occurs from southern Mexico through Honduras. Family Saturniidae. See the female: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/327....
White and gold moth of about 3 cm in length. Both the thorax and the hind wings are covered in long white hair. The legs are surprisingly colorful, banded with orange, tan and black (last 2 pictures). The antennae are very interesting (see Picture 5). The last three pictures were taken on 11 August 2014 in the same place. Family Geometridae.
Seems to be a Huntsman Spider. It is grey/brown in colour. It's head has a dark stripe down each side. The abdomen is the same colour as the head but has dark markings mirrored from L to R. It does seem to be quite hairy. One photo does shows little bit of the underside of the abdomen and that seems to be black.
