I'm not at all sure of this classification. Help!! This is a swallow-tailed moth (foto #3) that has a wingspan of about 7-8 cm. It is a brilliant white with 4 light gray stripes on each set of wings and a pair of black spots on the tip of each tail. I finally found a matching photo, but with incomplete classification (see reference box).
This beautiful moth joined me at my desk in the Amazon rainforest of SE Ecuador. I would imagine it can also be found outside in a somewhat more natural setting. It flew into our house and appeared quite content to sit under the light while I was working.
This is a little frustrating to have such a clear picture with such clear markings and not be able to identify it. Hopefully some of you will be more successful than I have been.
