Castniid Moth

Imara satrapes

Description:

T¨his moth was on a very dark place, even my light ring wasn't good enough for a really good photo, but I think it is possible to have a good idea of it's colors. Photos 3 and 4 show its head from a frontal view, last phoito shows it from the back.

I love Castniidae and I was very angry not thinking that it could be one. I should have known it...

Shape and size might match for Erebidae, Calpinae, besides the shape and position of the head, which looks more like Arctiinae. For Zygaenidae, the antennae do not match. Any other moths or caterpillars around?
