Sergio Monteiro Spotting

Thank you Dixie. Yes, these nymphs can be amazing. That broomlike feature in its tail is actually sugar. They can't process the sugar present in plants's sap, so they expel it in a liquid form, through a special system in their bodies. This liquid hardens in contact with the air, forming those filaments. That helps to protect the nymph in case of an attack.

Thank you John. Indeed, it is not an easy job, but sometimes I find a guy that is a bit more cooperative than the others...

This is the adult moth of Holophaea vesta, found in Suriname. When adult, my cat must be slightly different from this one, but close enough to give an idea of how it will look like when fully formed: https://www.alamy.com/holophaea-moth-hol...
