Malayan Tiger Moth

Cyana malayensis

Description:

A tiger moth with clear warning colours to mark its toxicity / poisonous. Most likely a male C. malayensis which most of the species under the Cyana genus are very similar in coloration and patterns - red and white stripes with black spots and orange wing tip. These colours make them stand out but as something that should be kept away from.

Habitat:

Found resting on the white wall of the lodge, attracted to the building's night lights in the tropical lowland rainforest of Tawau Hills Park, Sabah, Malaysia (Borneo).
