Ermine Moth


A white moth with black lines and two large orange spots on each wing. The first 3 black lines are complete (ie. unbroken). About 1 cm in length. The first moth is newly emerged, the 2nd moth (pictures 2 and 3) is an older more battered individual. The wings are curled and it looks like a moth in the Family Yponomeutidae.


Came to a Black light, Km 15 on the highway between San Cristobal de Las Casas and Tuxtla Gutierrez, on a cliff overlooking the Grijalva River valley, Chiapas, Mexico.
