Sorry, had to change my silly comment...
I still tend that one is NOT Trichura cerberus, I need to find some time to check my articles...

That's what I remember - that spotting is somewhere back there! Such a shock when one of the pair opened its wings.

I don't suppose an ID for that clear wing moth ever materialized? LOL

Yes, VERY different!

Please, take another common name, you can chose:
Blue-frosted Banner, Blue-frosted Catone, Grecian Shoemaker or Stoplight Catone ;-)...

Is this one of those where the male is hugely different? I had taken photos of a pair in Costa Rica, last year
