A wasp moth. It looks like Horama panthalon but there are enough differences that lead me to suspect another species. Seen near Cancun Mexico. Does anyone have any thoughts?
Came to lights at night. This Yucatan spotting seems a bit different than the ones I can see from the Texas area. I know there are 3 subspecies of this moth. One is called Horama panthalon texana and another is called Horama panthalon panthalon. I am wondering if my spotting could be the latter but I cannot find any images of it except for a mention of it in Wikipedia.
