Hallo DanielePralong and Bayucca, thanks for the correction! (: I shall keep it as Cephrenes acalle for now. Happy 2014!

I've often seen C. trichopepla in Australia and in trichopepla the ventral bands are more orange contrasting against a yellow background, as in this specimen and as shown in the ButterflyCircle pics . But I'm happy to leave it at Cephrenes sp. ! Happy New Year!

Hi Evelyn Chia! This is not a moth, but a skipper butterfly in the family Hesperiidae.
