Yellow-Banded Tiger

Aglaomorpha plagiata (Walker, 1855)


This is relatively a large moth and exceptionally bright and beautiful. White and yellow patches on a shining emerald blue background is mesmerizing. Wing length: 35 mm. This is perhaps a male, females are still bigger


Mixed forests mainly consisting of pines, cherry and bamboo. Cool to warm place. Altitude: 1,700 m.


This moth had visited our terrace light, and was hanging around in the garden till after sun rise. . NB: I see many photos of this moth with fore wings wide open exposing the beautiful yellow underneath, but I don't want to bother it by doing so. It normally keeps it wings closed.
