Your spotting has been nominated for the Spotting of the Week. The winner will be chosen by the Project Noah Rangers based on a combination of factors including: uniqueness of the shot, status of the organism (for example, rare or endangered), quality of the information provided in the habitat and description sections. There is a subjective element, of course; the spotting with the highest number of Ranger votes is chosen. Congratulations on being nominated!
Sorry, Hadenidae should actually be Hadeninae, since it is a subfamily of Noctuidae, which I am still tending to, but you never know...
Thanks bayucca - I thought of Hadenidae too, or Notodontidae, and the DRC photos are a useful resource. I wonder what my next step should be?
What about Noctuidae, Hadenidae? Sorry, no match found.Many moths have some features shown in yours, like the hairdo, striped legs and shape (!) of the wings, location/visibility of the eyes etc. and unfortunately looking at all these features indicate different families/subfamilies for each...
I want to say something similar to the genus Epicoma
