Syllepsis marialis

Syllepsis marialis

Notes:

The area that I live the vegetation is called "Cerrado" (vegetation of the Brazilian interior), it is very close to the Atlantic Vegetation, that is rich biodiversity area Brazil´s Southeast .The place that I found this moth has a small forest spot nearby, very dense and with a lot of insects birds and mamals too. Unfortunately, light from the buildings attracts these wonderfuls out of the forests... I found this, like many others spottings, at the outside wall of the building that I work.

Thanks Rubens - now it makes the spotting more alive and personal - an experience which we can all enjoy.
I feel sorry for the moths getting attracted to bright lights - there appears to be conflicting reports on how this affects populations. I hope it doesn't do them harm.

followed it from Crambidae to something like the Maruca vitrata. But can't find the right one
