You're welcome Ann :)
Thanks so much for the ID help ate Agnes! :)
The document is "A Review of the subfamily Arctiinae (Lepidoptera: Arctiidae) from the Philippines" by Karel ČERNÝ, 2011.
Hi Ann, pls refer to Plate 1, pages 68-69, figure 14. http://www.zobodat.at/pdf/ENT_0032_0029-.... Regards!
ID now updated... Though I'm not totally sure of it, so please feel free to confirm or otherwise! :-)
Still trying to ID the creature... Think it might be a Dark-spotted Tiger Moth (Ardices/Spilosoma canescens)... http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ardices_can...
Thanks Karen! :-)
Some kind of Tiger moth I think? Maybe Lophocampa sp. ??
