    1. Genus looks promising, as for species, struggling to find any reference images. Do you have some? Posted 8 days ago
        1. Thanks. Not sure why, but these direct links bring me to their homepage. Posted 8 days ago
          1. Sorry don't know why but anyway I uploaded the image to Lep Guides and those were the options without obvious head stripes but as I say I think A. bolivari looks very close though apparently only recorded in Venezuela. Posted 8 days ago
            1. Actually A. bolivari looks like a really long shot in terms of occurrence so don't know what to do with it. Posted 8 days ago
              1. Thanks for the updates, Peter. In my experience, this particular group of moths are extremely hard to identify. Quite frustrating how such a beautiful group is relatively poorly documented. I certainly lack the skill to come to an ID on this one, sorry. Posted 7 days ago
                1. Ok no problem. Thank you
