You're welcome Leana Lahom-Cristobal! I hope I can contribute more to the collection.

Great lanibucao! Your amata moth spotting is already in the mission. Thanks for joining!

Hi Leana Lahom-Cristobal, I'm not sure yet what to do if I'll join a mission. Do I just need to add this spotting there?

Hi lanibucao! We have a mission about documenting moths in the Philippines at http://www.projectnoah.org/missions/1591... . Please join! We'd love to have this moth spotting there. Thanks!

Post your amata moths @folicallychalled... Let's all have a go on the ID!

Wasp moths are so frustrating. I have a bunch of amata's that I wanted to ID before posting. Maybe I should just put them up and let you all have a go :)

I know these discussions ;-)... Actually I am still wondering why we do not have an ID for these one...

No worries :) :) Still hoping that one of these days, a PN member will finally pin the correct ID for these Philippine wasp moths.

oh, sry

Hi Lani, Wilson,

This is not Amata nigriceps, I believe. (Here's A. nigriceps - http://lepbarcoding.org/australia/specie...)

There had been discussions regarding the ID of Amata wasp moths in the Philippines. Until now, we could not go to species level. Pls read about it in this spotting - http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/164....

Regards.
