Que incrivel esta série!!
Pest or not a pest it is still a beauty!! Thank you for sharing this gorgeous creature, Sergio Monteiro.
Yeah, right, exactly what we needed, another invasive pest... thanks a lot, Jakubko, I'll check about this moth's incidence in Brazil.
Please, verify! I'm almost certain of genus Eudocima, but E. maternal needs to be verified! The species was previously Asian but is expanding its range to more tropical areas, including South America.
Dilan, Luis, Leanne, Muckpuk, Larry, Martin and Rubens, thank you. I agree that it is a fruit piercing moth, I am looking for an exact ID, Martin.
It certainly looks like a fruit piercing moth.The Asian genus is Othreis http://www.learnaboutbutterflies.com/Cat...http://hongkongkwildlifephotos.blogspot....
Que monstrinho em Sergio! Excelente!
Man, Sergio! Is that for real?
Hahahaha no clue what it is but it makes me laugh. Do you think that is the idea...make enemies die of laughter...
I love this series!
Very Beautiful series Sergio!
Carol, Jill, Cindy & Leuba, thank you.
Those eye-spots are amazing ! As always Sergio, an impressive specimen and fantastic photos !!
Wow. Nice one, Sergio!
Great looking caterpillar and series
Just love so much! This might be my favorite caterpillar you have found. But I love them all.
Juan DiTrani, johnlguerin, sarah in the woods, Mark Ridgway, RickLampman, Ava T-B, thank you for the nice comments on this. bayucca, thanks for the tip, I promise I'll try to get more info about it. As for that moth to come from thia caterpillar, it would be awesome to get both at the same day, right? but I am getting used to weird coincidences...
Great rocking spotting, Sergio! I am thinking of Fruit-piercing Moth, Erebidae, Calpinae, Eudocima sp.?? Not sure.Could this:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/153...be the moth? Shape and size might match for Calpinae, besides the shape and position of the head, which looks more like Arctiinae. For Zygaenidae, the antennae do not match.
(Y) SUPER NICE !!
Looks like it belongs on Sesame Street with those google eyes!
Incredible Sergio. Wow! What a treasure you spotted.
