Emeraldine Moth

Ceroctena amynta


This lovely Moth, Erebidae, came to the light in my Inner Garden. I feel very lucky because 3 days before NMW 2017 was over, all my Moths disappeared... I have been getting just only about 10 to 15 Month a day/night.... : ( : (


Gallery Forest. 900 Meters-3000 feet above sea level, next to Tanaka National Park, a Pasture , and in a Garden with Endemic trees, plants and flowers of Costa Rica.
