yellow moth with dark brown spots all over.. it just rested near the light bulb
at the mountains of Lilo-an, Cebu, Philippines
for more descriptions
At least you should correct this one ;-)...
Thanks so much for your help! I need to go and correct some of my IDs... :-}
I don't think it Asclepiades. There are always 2 dark spots on the forewing and 2 brighter patches at the margin of the forewing:http://www.flickr.com/photos/botalex/571...http://www.boldsystems.org/views/taxbrow...
Thanks so much for clearing that up bayucca! And sorry for any confusion caused xiang! (I've deleted the ID suggestion.)Bayucca - do you think the species could be Asclepiades? (Common name here: Monkey Moth)
This is not Cricula trifenestra. Cricula never has a black spot on the forewing like yours and in yours are no brighter spots on the forewing.Bombycoidea, Eupterotidae, Eupterote sp.Do not blame Ann! The ID she referred to is wrong! But they are the same moth.Some other shots:http://www.projectnoah.org/spottings/103...http://www.flickr.com/photos/17487183@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/17487183@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/sachingurul...http://www.flickr.com/photos/17487183@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/10821818@N0...http://www.flickr.com/photos/botalex/413...Cricula is here:http://www.boldsystems.org/views/taxbrow...
