Thanks Ava, good point and it is important information. But I suggest that these informations might added in the description section, not in the field of the scientific name. It might irritate the search engines.

IrungbamJatishworSingh, I like that you do the WHOLE scientific designation, including the first describer (Butler in this case) and the year it was first described.

Thanks Carol.

Might be Plutodes flavescens? But I agree, it is probably not possible to get closer than the genus. Plutodes flavescens is the most common one.

Quite a few species of Plutodes on the BOLD site. Most of them have a yellow vertex (top of the head). Many forms are included which have not been allocated to a named species, indicating that there may be quite a few species still to be described.

Lovely spotting. Seems as though someone has put Henna designs on the moth :-)
