Gorgonidia Tiger Moth

Gorgonidia buckleyi


Erebidae, Arctiinae, Arctiini, Phaegopterina, Gorgonidia buckleyi. Wildsumaco Lodge, 1450 m asl, Provincia de Napo, Ecuador


Neotropical rainforest. Altitudes from 500 m to 2000 m asl. There are several other species, which sometimes only differ in details, but in general the genus is unmistakable for it colors and markings.


Attracted to blacklight on the empty terrace of the Wildsumaco Lodge. The light I got from an old friend from facebook (Jim McClarin, a coleopterist) which I invited together with Andreas Kay to the lodge. So we had the whole lodge for us! Nothing more to add that I usually had an 18 h day with hunting bugs all the day and night... Hiring the best bird guy (Byron) I converted him to a butterfly and bug guy and a real mothman!

No species ID suggestions
