Geometrid Moth

Eois isographata


A pale yellow moth with dark brown and tan coloring. About 1cm in length. The antennae are beautiful, like cascading christmas lights (see pictures 2 & 3). The center of each hind wing is semi-transparent (pictures 4 & 5). I believe this is a variant of a species I last saw in August of 2014, see spotting: Family Geometridae.


Garden lights, semi-rural residential area, San Cristobal de Las Casas, Chiapas, Mexico, 2,200 meters.


Thank you to Pakko Ramirez Palacios of iNaturalist for the identification. It has been reported from Costa Rica, Brazil and Argentina. This may be a first spotting for Mexico.
