Pingasa cf lariaria
A striking specimen of the widespread and "populous" genus Pingasa which may well be Pingasa lariaria. http://www.mothsofborneo.com/part-9/geom... A datapoint in the same general area of the spotting in northern Papua can be seen on a map here http://www.lepbarcoding.org/geometridae/...
Captured on a wall on a campus nestled in the foothills of the Cyclops mountains. The campus is surrounded by village gardens and disturbed forest.
My daughter photographed this extraordinary moth at her school.
