Thanks all for the comment :)Thank you so much for Nuwan and bayucca :)
thank you bayucca.. very confusing genus with similar looking species!
Yes, I see that also this way. As with all these Amata sp., I am not very confident with most of the Utetheisa IDs in the Australasian area if they are not coming from a trustable site/side. I would not dare to question Martins ID of Pulchelloides, but sianakdesa's is a Lotrix.
Is so beautiful!
if pulchelloides is correct id for the spottinghttp://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/109....what we have here might be Lotrix !!
Fourth sight: I think it is Utetheisa lotrix. Check the same criteria I mentioned below in my last comment. What would you think, Nuwan??
Third sight, I don't think it is Pulchella. Look at the outer margin of the forewings. In my eyes in Pulchella there should be quite a very regular row of smaller red, black and white pins/spots. In this one there is not such a regular pattern:http://szmn.eco.nsc.ru/Lepidop/images/Ut...
