Phobetron sp. - Limacodidae
Thanks Adam, Lauren and Logan.... when I found it ..I didn't believe it was a insect ... by the way ... I never saw one like this anymore ...I hope to get the ID.
This is just fascinating! I also thought it was a bunch of mites feeding on a doodle. Remarkable and great photos!
Whoa! Crazy great camouflage
A primera vista pareciesen muchos insectos. Es fascinante!!! Muy buenas fotografías! :-)
never seen anything like this before
Doesn't it kind of look like scat? I wonder if that is it's defense mechanism...to look like, well you know!
This is a nice moth!
What's with all the hair??? Nice costume! :-)
Cool! A cheerleader moth! ha ha :D
Wow, amazing. Thanks for sharing.
Wow! Very bizarre
That's a cool looking moth. It looks very similar to a Hag Moth, so I'll guess is in the Genus Phobetron. But you may want to look through the Limacodidae family (Slug Caterpillar Moths) for ones found in this area of Brazil. maybe it's the BRAZILIAN MONKEY SLUG CATERPILLAR, I can't find a picture of an adult on-line.
