Estimado Julio, usted puede agregar sus fotos de polillas tanto las del año pasado como las actuales a la Misión Polillas de la Provincia de Salta. Algunos miembros de Project Noah, podrán asistirlo con la identificación de las mismas.
Sería muy lindo ver la diversidad de polillas de la zona del Gallinato, no sólo en la misión sino también en Project Noah. Desde ya agradezco sus colaboraciones.
¡Saludos!--Daniela.

Dear Daniela, I am in Salta and have lots of pics of moths taken last year and now. Perhaps we could see what we could do? I am in the Gallinato area and difficult to find. However, u could reply and we could talk/e-mail? Por supuesto que hablo espaniol... Saludos cordiales. Julio

Thanks for commenting,maksym.bedynski!
Thank you Eduardo! The genus is enough for me, I have bad luck with Spodoptera because I always find specimens damaged or in bad conditions.

This is a species of Spodoptera (Noctuidae). Further... i'm afraid it is rather difficult because the moth is in poor condition.

I have always considered moths and umping spiders to be cute.
Reasons:
1. Furry
2. Huge black eyes
Very nice spotting.
