Thanks Bill & Bayucca. The change is made.
He, he :-)), thanks Bill! I am happy to see my suggestion and guess being the same. Therinia is now called Asthenidia, I think I should have know that 9 month ago as well. The ID of Bill is 100% safe, Emiliy!
Bayucca might be correct with follwoing family as it is recorded in the spotted region.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/OxyteninaeWhat is the size of wings of this moth...?Look like bigger to Uraniidae family moths...http://www.boldsystems.org/index.php/Tax...
These type Moths called Swallowtailed type Moths. Mostly from Uraniidae subfamily.
Asthenidia lactucina.Bill Oehlke
Thanks for the information, Bayucca.
It is not Geometraria and Stricturaria.
Micronia is a genus from South Asia. It is a Saturniidae, Therinia sp., closer is tricky, the moth is a little bit too bright to clearly see the markings. Might be Therinia lactucina due to the slightly falcated apex, but I am not sure. There are probably more species in Guyana.
