Thanks for the nice compliment! Give me some moths or even butterflies from Colombia or Ecuador and I am sure that I would have difficulties to ID these ones. There are ton of still undetected and unreported creatures from the rainforest!

bayucca, you are the man!
My challenge now is to find a butterfly or moth that you cannot find the ID ! :>) Thanks!

Obviously I was already quite close ;-)... It is a Geometridae, Sterrhinae, Cyllopoda jatropharia.

Very tricky one! It is either a Geometridae, Sterrhinae, Smicropus sp. or Notodontidae, Dioptinae, Erbessa sp. or even a completely different family. You need an open wing shot and probably the native specimen to get closer. I wouldn't dare to get closer than: A beautiful yellow/black moth.
