Amata Wasp Moth

Amata sp.


Has yellow and black stripes along the abdomen, thorax is black with yellow markings and head is black, while wings are yellowish tinged. It is supposed to mimic a wasp or a bee with its wing and body pattern. It is day-flying and in my area, can be seen looking for a mate near vines. I do not know what their host plant is or what the caterpillars look like. These moths can be found flying in the afternoon and evening.


Ural areas, like subdivisions, light forestry, parks and gardens, and sometimes in cities during evening.


Thanks to those three humble users who commented on my Hippotion hawk moth sighting! I feel more encouraged to post, also please expect me to not reply immediately. Also, please no bad comments against me! Im just a person having fun here on Project Noah. Also, thanks for reading!
