Atlas Moth / Rothschild Silkmoth [subspecies] commented on by bayucca São Paulo, Brazil2 months ago

Atlas Moth is not the common name for this one. Rothschildia Moth would only be correct.

bayucca Tiger moth

Not a tiger moth, but a crambid moth.

bayucca Butterfly
Butterfly commented on by bayucca Celaya, Guanajuato, Mexico4 months ago

This is a tricky one! I first checked Parides photinus, but this one has different markings. Finally I found Heraclides rogeri, which has the correct color of the spots and in addition a slightly brighter, "dusty-like" part of the forewing. In Alopius the spots in the second row are white, not red like in yours:
And it is not Parides photinus:

Usually we do not add the family name in the scientific field (only sometimes subfamily/tribe, but mostly name of genus or best species name. But in this case, we probably would not get closer than the family.

This is not a Derbidae, but a Diptera, so a "fly" from the family Tephritidae.
