Hi Tukup ... yes, you are right. This is Heranice miltoglypta.

I revised the link and some other sites containing information on Cercosaura oshaughnessyi, but I'm not sure it is the right specie. I revised the distribution and it seems that Cercosaura oshaughnessyi is located in the Amazon side of Ecuador, and I saw this one in the coast of Ecuador, far from its described location.

I didn´t notice the resemblance. Yes, it looks like a WWII pilot !

Hi Ashley. I think you are right. Just checked it in "The birds of Ecuador" and it fits the distribution and taxonomy. Thanks.

It is in the Buenaventura Scientific Station. Usually what I do is to use a "light trap" with a black light and a white sheet in the background to attract beetles. In one night you can see hundreds of thousands of insects coming to the black light traps and falling in the white sheet ... there are so much insects in the white sheets that sometimes you "breath" insects !!! That is why you are going to see a lot of white backgrounds in my pictures. I love black light traps. Best regards Desmond !
