Magpie moth - Vietnam Looks very similar to Nyctemera secundiana . Again there are so many and Vietnamese Lepidoptera are not well studied. Click/tap to enlarge

Magpie moth - Vietnam

Looks very similar to Nyctemera secundiana . Again there are so many and Vietnamese Lepidoptera are not well studied.

  1. It looks beautiful, and although it will be tricky to find the species, it is one of very few photos we have from Viet Nam? Posted 10 days ago
  2. The pattern of the forewings of Nyctemera baulus is similar. According to some sources they are synonyms. According to the Catalogue of Life and GBIF they are both accepted species. In BOLD Systems their hindwings are different. Unfortunately, we cannot see the hindwings of this on.
