And that link still shows them thousands of miles from the location listed here. No one says you have to be an expert, but the purpose of this site is to learn about wildlife all over the world, and part of that is having correct ID's for wildlife. We try to stress how important it is to check all aspects of an ID before you suggest it to another user because not all users check the ID suggestions before they accept them, and that's how many things get mis-ID. I don't have to know the ID to know that an ID suggestion that is at least in range is a great idea. This site is more about science than it is about pretty pictures, and we are trying to keep that aspect the highest priority.

They are not only in one place..

I suggest and ID because I saw the same kind of moth, but I'm not a "professional in the field", people can make mistakes, for me, right now, it's a euproctis similis, if isn't then I'm going to learn something new.
BTW, if you know the ID then suggest it, if not, I'm in the work and I'm losing my time writing.

Ok then, despite the dark spots, why would you suggest an ID that's thousands of miles out of range?

Ajenjonadita 6 years ago

Yeah, the location isn't right.
But only the male moths have the dark spots.

Ajenjonadita, not only is Euproctis similis not found in Bangledash, it also has two brown spots on the forewing that this moth does not have.

sumone plz help me identify this spotting .... its type has again laid eggs on the walls which hav hatched ..... so i need to keep them on the right leaf to keep them alive
