Scoopwing Moth

Uraniidae, Epipleminae

Description:

Per Dr. Roger Kendrick, it does not have the right pattern for a Pterotosoma castanea (Warren, 1896), a species of moth of the family Uraniidae family, subfamily Epipleminae. The forewing margin is irregular in shape, strongly concave over the anterior part, and the hindwing has the fringes expanded to give a third tail.

Habitat:

Makiling Botanic Gardens, a forest park of the Mt. Makiling Center for Mountain Ecosystems (adjacent or within the UPLB-College of Forestry and Natural Resources), University of the Philippines at Los Baños, Laguna.
