Green Pergesa Hawk Moth spotted by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 2 minutes ago

Sphingidae; Macroglossinae; Pergesa acteus (Cramer,1779). "The Sphingidae are a family of moths, commonly known as hawk moths, sphinx moths, and hornworms. They are moderate to large in size and are distinguished among moths for their rapid, sustained flying ability. Their narrow wings and streamlined abdomens are adaptations for rapid flight." Philepidoptera.

Tropical Ermine Moth favorited by tomk3886 Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 5 hours ago

Attevidae; Atteva Walker,1854; Atteva sp. "Atteva is a genus of moths in the monotypic family Attevidae. The group has a pantropical distribution; however, the range of at least one species, Atteva aurea, extends into the temperate zone. No consistent hypotheses regarding the relationships, placement, and ranking of Attevidae have been published, but the prevalent view is that they likely form a monophyletic group within the Yponomeutoidea*."

Metalmark Moth 02 favorited by tomk3886 Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 5 hours ago

Choreutidae. These small moths often bear metallic scales and are mostly day-flying (some also come to lights), with a jerky, pivoting behaviour, and may fluff up their wings at an extreme angle. Some tropical exemplars such as the genus Saptha are quite spectacular, with bright green metallic bands. The members of the genus Brenthia, usually placed in their own subfamily Brenthiinae, have eyespots on the wings and have been shown to mimic jumping spiders (Rota and Wagner, 2006). Wikipedia
