Striking metalmark moth as seen in the photo.


Primary Amazonian rainforest at around 230 m.


It looks like it will be a Rubropsichia species of some type but nothing found to match.

Thanks Christine and Leuba.
I get just as excited by a sighting like this than of most butterflies.

Looks very similar to Rubropsichia fuesliniana images on Google. Lots of differences too :).
Pretty moth. Hope you get an ID soon. Sorry I was not of more help.
