Glyptobasis sp (ID by Joshua R Jones and Bijoy Joy.)

Thanks, ChunXingWong for the ID.
While several languages have their own terms for the Antlion adult (like Kuzhiyana in Malayalam), there is no widely used word for them in English.
No, Chief RedEarth; both Antlion and Owlfly are Lacewings (Neuroptera) but are different families. Photo of adult Antlion: http://www.flickr.com/photos/jkadavoor/5...
Thanks Argybee; photo of Amata sperbius looks similar to me. The one with three red bands is Euchromia polymena; not Amata cyssea.
