Thank you.They seem to vary in looks and this is certainly similar. I know nothing about such things and was looking for a pretty exact match.
I photographed a similar one near Jundiai.I will use your Chauliognathus reference as a possible ID.
Thanks.With a digital camera you can take a lot of photos which you could not do pre digital days.
Thank you.Certainly nearer than anything I found.I never know how much variety a species might have.
I am not not an expert on moths. In quite a few types the males have feathery antennae and these are not feathery. However, whether that is the case in this genus I am not certain.Thus I may be wrong.
Thanks Mark.They do look almost the same to me. I can find these in Brazil but there seems to be little detail as to where the various copaxa species are found.
I guess that does happen.
An attractive species.
On Wikipedia this moth should not be in Peru, but it certainly seems to look right to me.Perhaps someone can sort that.
Thank you very much.From what I have seen of other photos of this species which show feathered antennae they will I assume be males and this will be a female.
