I'll check it out, thanks :D
Mijat asked a good question! I felt free to add my comment here as well."Good question! Actually I have also difficulties with yours and I certainly will re-check my other Phegea. It is quite easy to separate them IF the spots are how they usually should be. What is unfortunately not the case in yours (and also not really in the Phegea you mentioned)...The spot towards the body on the hindwing should be larger than the basal spot in Kruegeri. In Phegea it is the other way round. So what shall we do if both spots are from the same size? I would tend to Phegea as well, but I am not 100% sure. Phegea starts usually in June, whereas Kruegeri in May, depending on the season, which is not easy to judge this year.If we are not sure we should take Amata sp. with mentioning the 2 possible candidates in the description section."I still would tend to Amata phegea.
how do u know that it's not some other amata? i have one but i can't decide which one is it?http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/315...
No worrys, thank you for the ID ^.^
Sorry, scientific name should be Amata phegea not Amatea phegea!!
