It looks as though your specimen has a hitchhiker, a mite, which is that reddish protrusion below the head.

I made the ID using my copy of Kaufman's Field Guide to Butterflies of North America, p. 180-181 (2003)-Nina

this appears to be some type of thread waist wasp.

I think you may be spot on with your hunch Tom--I haven't looked through Barnes' plates in a year or so; I don't the link you posted was and image on the site the last time I went through--I usually go through every single image he has on his multiple site comparing to my numerous photos from Mexico that I haven't gotten to genus or species...

I see he's got it to genus, but not named down to species. Coloration is correct, including those unique looking white tipped antennae.

I just bought some books on moths for Costa Rica and Mexico, so I'll see if I can find more info there. I've scanned through Matthew Barnes' sites many times but no match to mine either. I think mine and yours are the same species or very close to it, taken in nearly the same location. https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?fbid=...

Hi Tom, this appears to be a Horama species. Close to Horama panthalon texana, but not quite a match. I have a photo of the same species in my facebook Mexican Moths section from Dec 2009

I am envious...I have wanted to see this moth since I started photographing them in 2008

I think this may be a species within the genus Catocala. !Sretno u pronalaženju vrsta!

BTW, that should read FOREWING and not hindwing. I really shouldn't type before coffee!

Lovely photo series. I have two bat boxes I will be putting out this summer--I hope to get some families living in them this year. They are the best insect control you can have!
