Found this strange couple mating in my yard...
Yay! When I saw the pictures of the other moths I has a feeling that this was a relative. I am so excited that you were able to discover the species!
FOUND IT! It's Phobetron hipparchia!Thank you, ForestDragon!
They remind me of some of the Slug Caterpillar moths we have here:http://bugguide.net/node/view/544333/bgp...
Thomaz you say strange, I say very strange. Great Find.
Yeah! When I saw them, at first, I thought it was bird poop! There are some birds here, as sanhaçu (Tangara sayaca) who eats lots of fruits and their poop are like these moths!
Incredible mimicry! These moths are so neat!
Still can't believe they are moths -what brilliant mimicry - bird or bat dropping !! -you do have some amazing creatures in Brazil. Hope you get an ID...
That is very strange; rather looks like something dropped out of a fig newton.
