Attracted to a blacklight, Lymantriidae
Thanks again bayucca, looks like you put some time in here. I think also Lymantria sapaensis, also recorded from northern Thailand. Many specimens herehttp://www.insecta-web.org/cgi-bin/MWM/v...
Erebidae, Lymantriinae, Lymantriini, Lymantria sp., sorry, cannot tell you for sure which one it is. Very variable and sometimes quite a distinctive sexual dimorphism. Might be Ganara? Narindra? Possibly Sapaensis! Malehttp://www.boldsystems.org/pics/MPGM/LYR...http://www.jpmoth.org/~dmoth/Digital_Mot...http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Tax...Checking other links (sometimes I hate this stupid new flickr!!) I might have found it nevertheless...Looks like being Lymantria sapaensis, originally described from Vietnam and only 1998, so, quite a new species!!https://species.wikimedia.org/wiki/Lyman...From a russian paper, no chance to read the text, but the pictures are find:http://molbiol.ru/forums/uploads/a004/b0...https://www.flickr.com/photos/77995220@N...Maybe you find the female nearby??https://www.flickr.com/photos/itchydogim...
