Thank you Tiz & AgnesAdiiqueTalavera for your help .. much appreciated
There are new combinations of Indo-Australian "Euproctis” with Nygmia, Artaxa, Arna, Orvasca and other nygmiine genera (Family Erebidae, Subfamily Lymantriinae, Tribe Nygmiini). I've seen similar photos IDd as Artaxa sp. Pls. check out also. Regards.
I saw that spotting before and that made me googled a bit on the Euproctis lutea, and I could not find any evidence that it exists outside Australia. I also think that they are very similar, but your moth seems to have a bit bigger and wider antennas... Flyffy was a typo, but it sounds quite fun :D Looking forward to hear more opinions on this one...
Hi Tiz This spotting looks the same I think http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/194...
It looks very similar to the Australian Yellow Tussock Moth (Euproctis lutea) apart from the antennas... It is a flyffy and beautiful little thing you found there :)
