Your welcome Marco. You are right - the club on the end of the antennas is barely noticeable.

Yes. As it is endemic to the Philippines.

Yes! Thanks Brian! Since it wasn’t fringed or brushy then it wasn’t also the typical clublike antenna of butterflies, I got confused 🤦🏻‍♂️lol 😂 Haha thanks for this. Will edit my description now haha.

Hi Marco and welcome to Project Noah. Great job on getting a good picture of these fast flyers. It is actually a butterfly. Typically butterflies have a long, thin antenna with a ball or club on the end. Moths are usually shorter feathery antennas.

Thanks Brian! Yes, looks like a snow flat. Possibly Philippine common snow flat?
