Vishnou Lappet Male

Trabala vishnou Lefevre, 1827


This is a large moth. However, male are smaller than the females.


Mixed forest consisting of bamboo, cherry, pines etc. Warm to cold place. Altitude: 1,700 m.


Pl note the gutter running across its dorsum. It appears to me that the defect was there at the pupal stage, because except the cut mark the hairs are intact.
