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: http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/777.... 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. http://www.tropicleps.ch/bild.php?bild=0... http://v3.boldsystems.org/index.php/Taxb... It has been reported from Costa Rica, Brazil and Argentina. This may be a first spotting for Mexico.
