I'm a little disappointed, but at the same time grateful for this new knowledge. You're totally correct. Thanks!
Hypercompe scribonia is not found in Brazil, although there were some reports about it. But the ID of these ones is wrong. It is definitely a Hypercompe sp., might be Hypercompe cunigunda, but I would not dare to definitely confirm that. These moths are tricky to ID.Look at the similarity on Hypercompe indecisa, very similar but the spots and markings are slightly different: http://www.faunaparaguay.com/Hypercompe%...http://www.treknature.com/gallery/photo2...http://www.flickr.com/photos/acauan_cord...http://www.inra.fr/papillon/arct_guy/boi...http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/And...http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Tax...Wrong ID's:http://www.gigapan.com/gigapans/87803/http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/728...
