..thnks bayucca for the xplanatn...:)
Limacodidae or Slug Moths is the family name. So each Euclea is automatically a member of this family. In some cases the members of the same family may look similar. And you have the same families all over the globe. So you have Limacodidae in North- and South America and you have them also in Asia and Australia. They might look similar due to the fact, that for each family you have some special features (just very short story, in the reality there are tons of exceptions).
ok...J, iam nt an entomologist so, its dfficlt 4 me to identify....but arent Euclea delphinii and Limacodidae very much similar...??..
Thanks a lot every1.... :)...nd 4 bayucca...isnt this an Euclea delphininii..??...i think it is...and i hav seen such species of several other colors here in Bangladesh before... :)
As bayucca said before, it cannot be Euclea delphinii. Euclea delphinii is a US species and not found in Bangladesh. Unfortunately most of the Limacodidae species found in India and Esta Asia are not identified, not even the genus is noted.
