About 4 to 5 cm long moth, striped-brown upperwings with white pattern. Thorax black with white spots.
Found at outskirts of urban environment of Abuja, in Millennium Park - a city park rather well taken care off; and very close to a forest, known as "national arboretum".
I'm having problems with this one, as it seems this gender is not well discussed on Internet... To me, this looks like a day-flying tiger moth Chiromachla leuconoe, but according to some sources, this species is not represented in Nigeria... The two species from this gender, accounted for in Nigeria, are C. perspicua & C. restricta - and I can't find conclusive info and photos for these two...
