Erebid Moth spotted by John B. Palauig, Central Luzon, Philippines 2 hours ago

Erebidae; Erebinae; Erebini; Erebus (type genus) Erebus sp. This moth is beyond my descriptive skills. So I will fall back on the old adage "A picture is worth a thousand words" and ask you to bear with me and just have a look. There are many pictures of Erebus spp. which can be viewed online, but I could not find a match. My old favourite, Philippine Lepidoptera has three specimens labelled Erebus sp. nr. crepuscularis and my moth has some features which appear to match some aspects of those three. However, when you get down to "this bit looks like that one, but this other bit looks more like this one" then you are in deep trouble. The long and the short of it is that I don't know if my moth is nr. crepuscularis because I cannot see a crepuscularis. Trying to identify my moth because it looks like another moth which resembles... well you get my point. It reminds me of the old days of photo copy machines - if you make a copy of an original then you have something, but make a copy of a copy and you you have nothing but a problem. So, once again, I find myself taking the easy way out and surrendering to a rather vague Erebus sp.

Tree Sparrow favorited by Rithmini Dinhara Budapest, Hungary 4 hours ago

Sparrow-sized and house-sparrow-like bird - even though from far away the two species can be confused, on a closer look they are easily distinguished. The Eurasian Tree Sparrow, presented here, sports chestnut crown (distinguishably grey in House sparrow), bright white cheek, and black ear patch with large black line on throat. Sexes are similar.
