Thanks so much for your help Agnes!

Hi Ann, not an expert really, just an observer :) For my answers:
Q1: Yes, it is also Erebus clavifera.
Q2: I agree with your ID.

Thanks so much for the ID correction Agnes!
Can I make use of your expertise and ask you a couple of questions:
- So this one is not E. ephesperis either:

- And do you agree with this ID of E. hieroglyphica: ?

Thank you

Pls include also in our moth mission ;) -

Hi Ann, I think this Erebus Moth is Erebus clavifera (syn. Erebus philippensis) -

Erebus ephesperis has the mustache-like feature on its "face" -
