Not very common here. During this 1 week trip in Kundasang, I could only spot about 5 individuals. At least it is more common here in the highlands than the lowlands. I am not sure how common they are in other parts of Malaysia.
Thats very nice of you...So its common in Malaysia i think..
I will try to take a photograph of it in it's natural habitat to show it camouflaging.
Imagining how it can be differentiated in a complete green background :) Lovely spotting...
Thank you Smith'sZoo, you should also see Nuwan's collection and JuanCarlos's Mexican moths.
I believe each local spotters have their own amazing endemic moth collections from their area.
All these moth spottings in my page are spotted in Kundasang in 2009.
I have not finished uploading all the moths I have spotted during that trip on PN yet but I can give you a link to the page displaying icon photographs of all the insects I have discovered during that trip.
