  1. Opisthoxia lineata? Posted one year ago
    1. Great Christine thank you. I wonder if there are any links timages of this. Posted one year ago
        1. Great Christine. It looks like Kay had trouble finding images too. This moth seems to be very under reported. Posted one year ago
          1. Hmm. Maybe, but I don't see any with the black spots along the costa in the genus Therinia. I generally trust Andreas' IDs because they got so much visibility, including expert attention. But, perhaps the person that suggested Therinia sp. to you is knowledgeable and knows something that we don't. I can't say either way, but I still vote for Opisthoxia lineata because the 2 online images are remarkably similar to yours, while I can't find any in the genus Therinia that are as close.

              1. Oh, oops...I commented on the wrong comment. You're welcome...I could be wrong, but until/unless there is more evidence... Posted one year ago
                1. Yes absolutely and the best evidence so far is what you supplied. Posted one year ago
    2. Genus Therinia has now been suggested. Any opinions here on that? Posted one year ago
